The intimate and professional reflections of one of the most important and popular artists of the twentieth century. Revealing and explicit.
Keith Haring, who died in 1990 at the age of thirty-one, was renowned in his lifetime for his spontaneous almost grafitti-like archetypal imagery. He captured a street audience while ignoring the art establishment. His journals, kept from school days until just before his death from AIDS, dispel any notion of him as a naive artist and record his conscious committed drive to expand the boundaries of art. Here in his own words – illustrated with previously unpublished drawings from his notebook – is Haring’s evolution, from early subway chalk sketches to massive suburban steel sculptures; the pop icon catapulted to media fame; the international exhibition; the magazine covers; the friendships with Warhol, Leary and Burroughs.

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.Review:
