Keith Haring

Artist Bio
Keith Haring holds a unique position in the recent history of art. He was not only a pioneer of the new art of the 80's, but undoubtedly one of the most confident, daring and original artists of the past 50 years. Having arrived in New York in 1978-79, by 1982, with his first one man exhibition, in my old gallery at 163 Mercer Street, he had become an international art star, and his travels and exhibitions in Holland, Germany and Japan were as exciting as the arrival of the Beatles. His originality and inventiveness, his most animated and recognizable figures and iconography are among the most loved and prized images in the art of our time.
