    Art is for Everybody: The artist as activist. One of the key figures in the New York art world of the 1980s, Keith Haring created a signature style that blended street art, graffiti, Pop, and cartoon elements to unique, memorable effect. With thick black outlines, bright colours and kinetic figures, his public (and occasionally illegal) interventions, sculptures, and works on canvas and paper have become instantly recognisable icons of 20th century visual culture.

    In this vivid introduction to Haring s work we explore the dynamic life and innovative spirit of this singular artist, who spent little more than a decade in the spotlight, but through the accessibility of his visual vocabulary and the strength of his political commitment became one of the most significant artists to emerge from New York s vibrant, downtown community.
