Keith Haring (May 4, 1958 - February 16, 1990) was a pre-eminent artist whose work responded to the New York street culture of the 1980s.
He set out to reach the widest possible audience with his early drawings in the subways and quickly gained recognition in the art world. Despite his early death in 1990 at the age of 31, Haring's imagery has become a universally recognized visual language of the 20th century. The Keith Haring Foundation, established in 1989, continues Keith's legacy of giving to children's organizations.
