Untitled (Man on a Dolphin B&W)

Keith Haring
1987
Lithograph
Edition of 70
29.5035.38
Price: $26,000 USD

Like his friend Basquiat, Haring emerged from street art and illustration into art world stardom after associating with Warhol and winning his good favor. Haring initially gained notice through his guerrilla practice of drawing in white chalk on the hundreds of blank matte-black advertising panels in the subways of New York. Known to draw as many as 40 of these panels in a given day, Haring’s signature blocky figures became a symbol of the city’s daily commute. Despite international recognition after several wildly popular museum exhibitions, Haring remained deeply interested in breaking down the barriers between high and low art and creating class accessibility to contemporary works. In 1986 he opened the Pop Shop in Soho that sold simple consumer goods (toys, t-shirts, buttons, etc.) printed with his images and sold at a low cost. As planned, elites and the less-privileged alike were known to loiter freely in his retail store/installation/social sculpture.

Haring died of AIDS related complications in 1990, and since that time has had his work enter into several museum’s permanent collections. He, his work, and his orbit continue to be the subject of many international retrospectives.
