Keith Haring

You may not know his name but you know his work when you see it. Keith Haring was an artist and political activist whose paintings depicting birth, war, sexuality and death helped define New York’s street art culture in the 80’s. Haring’s work also included anti-Apartheid and AIDS awareness themes and depicted the crack epidemic. Haring’s “Crack Is Wack” mural can be seen from New York City’s FDR and his last public work, the “Tuttomondo” mural, is painted on the wall of Church of Sant’Antonio in Pisa, Italy. Haring died in 1990 of AIDS-related complications at just 31 years old.
