Settled in New York at the age of 18, Keith Haring soon discovers the underground scene and, influenced by street art, he creates his first works that establish his trademark imagery made of babies, dogs, hearts and genitals. Soon remarked and celebrated, Keith Haring becomes a popular and successful artist who manages to combine consumption and creativity in the most extreme pop art concept. A subversive, he delivers an apparently simple and joyful work that hides political and social messages. When he discovers he is ill from the AIDS disease, he turns into an international spokesman who urges young people to protect themselves and when he dies, he yet remains the young clownish figure adorned in round glasses and denim shorts. When most teenagers assimilate Keith Haring to funky t-shirts and school pencil cases, the art world recognizes a visual choc that raised questions and emotional messages.
