THE PRINT

Bridging the gap between the art world and the street, Keith Haring rose to prominence in the early 1980s with his graffiti drawings made in the subways and on the sidewalks of New York City. Combining the appeal of cartoons with the raw energy of Art Brut artists Haring developed a distinct pop-graffiti aesthetic centered on fluid, bold outlines against a dense, rhythmic overspread of imagery like that of babies, barking dogs, flying saucers and hearts. In his subway drawings and murals, Haring explored themes of exploitation, subjugation, drug abuse, and rising fears of nuclear holocaust, which became increasingly apocalyptic after his AIDS diagnosis. This premium quality giclee art print reproduction of the promotional poster for Haring's 1983 exhibition at the Galerie Watari in Tokyo, Japan has been produced on luxurious 100% cotton rag textured art paper using archival quality inks resulting in a superior print suitable for museum or gallery display. This fun and stylish artwork will make a stunning addition to any contemporary home. 
  • Gallery quality giclée art print
  • 300gsm 100% cotton rag textured art paper
  • Natural white with a matte finish
  • Archival inks for vivid colour and sharp detail
  • Can be purchased framed or unframed

THE ARTIST

Keith Haring, the street artist who famously declared that “art is for everybody,” started designing posters in 1982, while he was still a student at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Haring was drawn to posters because they were a democratic medium—a great way to share his bright designs and graphic characters with the public on a large scale. Over the next eight years, Haring created over 80 unique posters, from corporate advertisements for Absolut and Lucky Strike to cultural announcements for the Montreux Jazz Festival and the World Breakdance Championship. Haring also used posters as a means for social activism, spreading awareness about the crack cocaine epidemic in the United States, apartheid in South Africa, global nuclear disarmament, and the devastation of AIDS—a disease Haring would eventually face. Together, these posters feature nearly all of Haring’s signature icons, including his radiant baby, flying angel, and barking dog.

We will deliver your beautiful custom framed artwork to your door within 7 working days if you reside in New Zealand or 15 working days if you reside in Australia. We recommend pairing Keith Haring Galerie Watari 1983 with our black frame.
