ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

The name of Keith Haring needs no introduction. The American artist, often noted among the most influential figures of the 20th century art, was born in 1958 in Reading (Pennsylvania) and died in 1990 in New York. Haring started his art education at the Ivy School of Professional Art in Pittsburgh, later continued at the School of Visual Arts (1978). There, in New York, it became possible for the young Haring to irreversibly alter the art scene, erasing the borders between fine and street art. The artist left his trails all over the world, beginning with the first ephemeral chalk drawings in the subway and clubs, later extending his artistic repertoire with graffiti, paintings, collages, and photographs. Not only is he still appreciated for his contribution to the aforementioned genres, but also for his work as an activist; this aspect of his oeuvre has been highlighted in the most recent retrospectives at the Kunsthalle Munich (2015), de Young Museum in San Francisco (2014), and the Musée d´Art Moderne in Paris (2013). His body of work is divided between the world's most renowned art collections, including the MoMA and the Whitney Museum in New York, MOCA in Los Angeles, Museum of Modern Art in Moscow, Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin, and many others.
