Keith Haring.

Keith Haring never interested me much in the 80's. I would skate by Pop Shop on Lafayette Street and never give it a second look. Not only until years later did I realize how amazing his work was. He touched on every serious subject at the time but in a way that made it less gloomy. His playful characters and signature thick brush strokes were graphically perfect and his canvas was any blank wall in his path. He is the original pop street artist and you can see his influence all over the walls of the city today.

Harings' work has had a lasting impact on both the art world, the graphic design world, and the fashion world. He is the definition of pop art.
