Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A stunning Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition of the activist artist's extraordinary journals

Keith Haring is synonymous with the downtown New York art scene of the 1980's. His artwork-with its simple, bold lines and dynamic figures in motion-filtered in to the world's consciousness and is still instantly recognizable, twenty years after his death. This Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition features ninety black-and-white images of classic artwork and never-before-published Polaroid images, and is a remarkable glimpse of a man who, in his quest to become an artist, instead became an icon.

Synopsis:

During his lifetime, Keith Haring's spontaneous, archetypal creations won both a street audience and the respect of the art establishment. Kept from his teens until his death from AIDS in 1990, these illuminating journals reveal Haring's conscious, committed drive to extend the boundaries of art. Photos & drawings throughout. Radio news feature.

About the Author

Keith Haring (1958-1990) came to New York City in 1978 to attend the School of Visual Arts. He developed into an internationally famous artist whose works are represented in museum collections around the world, and who, through the Keith Haring Foundation, has supported hundreds of children's and AIDS-related charities.
