Keith Haring

Haring's imagery has become a universally recognized visual language of the 20th century.

He achieved his first public attention with chalk drawings in the subways of New York. Around this time, "The Radiant Baby" became his symbol.

Starting in 1980, he organized exhibitions in Club 57. He participated in the Times Square Exhibition and drew, for the first time, animals and human faces. In 1981 he sketched his first chalk drawings on black paper and painted plastic, metal and found objects.
