Small guys running on the walls, are agitated and enlivened. Faceless but whose emotion is palpable. We are well in the universe of Keith Haringb in 1958 in Reading, in the state of Pennsylvania, Keith Haring begins in Pittsburg where he follows commercial graphics before Abandon to register for the School of Visual Art in New York.keith is a "asphalt child", the street, his colors, his culture and his codes nourish his work and his imagination. In the street, you have to do it quickly and well, be precise and safe from your gesture. This is how he will develop a drawing with rhythmic and fast lines. In the metro, an "underground" environment par excellence, he experiences and meets artists from the emerging scene: Jean-Michel Basquiat and Kenny Scharf whose concerns- war, drugs, racism- touch him speak. Work all your life for the social cause. He will paint frescoes in bright colors in hospitals, orphanages but also on the Berlin Wall. In 1984, his characters will take colors in the vein of the & nbsp; pop art, conveying an awareness and a message of hope. When he learned in 1987 that he suffered from HIV, he will try to educate the general public about this cause and raise funds via an association to fight against this scourge.

An approach that will be criticized for him by the art world, but which will represent a small artistic revolution, never seen before. The HIV will be right for him, and Keith Haring will go out in 1990, leaving behind a quantity Works, exhibitions and collaborations with other artists from various artistic fields, starting with & nbsp; Andy Warhol, but also Madonna, Grace Jones, Jenny Holzer or Yoko Ono.
