Truly devoted to the idea of public art, Keith Haring created murals wherever he went – including several in the Village. Keith Haring made a name for himself through his iconic pop art and graffiti-like style transformed the New York City underground in the 1980s as an artist and gay activist. A member of the LGBTQ community, Haring died tragically at the age of thirty-one from AIDS-related complications, leaving a foundation and a legacy of AIDS activism, visibility, and truly unique artistry.
From Matthew Burgess, Professor of English at Brooklyn College and much-acclaimed author of “Enormous Smallness,” comes “Drawing on Walls: A Story of Keith Haring.” Illustrated in paint by Josh Cochran, himself a specialist in bright, dense, conceptual drawings, this honest, celebratory book honors Haring’s life and art.
