Keith Haring (1958-90) was one of the most renowned of the young artists, filmmakers, performers, and musicians whose work responded to the urban street culture of the 1980s.

Inspired by the graffiti artists whose marks covered the city’s subway cars, Haring began to draw in white chalk over the black paper used to cover vacant advertising panels.

Not only he was able to reach a large and diverse audience with his subway drawings but, eventually, the subway became, as Haring said, a “laboratory” for working out his ideas. As early as 1980, Haring began exhibiting in galleries and museums around the world.
