Right now the Brooklyn Museum is showing Keith Haring 1978-1982, the first large-scale show to really delve into Haring’s career.
The exhibition includes 155 pieces on paper, videos, sketchbooks, journals, flyers, posters, photographs and his all-important and very recognisable street and subway drawings.
A close colleague and friend of Basquiat and Warhol, Haring’s work appears on walls and subways all over the world, but nowhere was he as prolific or as significant as he was in New York City.
We love that the majority of his pieces appear to be causal doodles, just little bits and pieces that came into his mind, but are so important and have become entirely iconic.
