The artist Keith Haring

  • US-American street art artist, lived and worked mainly in New York
  • Important representative of Pop Art of the 1980s.
  • Heavily involved in HIV awareness for many years.

Keith Haring, born on 4 May 1958 in Reading, Pennsylvania, died on 16 February 1990 in New York City, was one of the most important artists of the Pop Art scene of the 1980s. He was already interested in art as a child and drew comic figures together with his father.

After studying commercial art at the Ivy School of Professional Art in Pittsburgh at the age of 18, he moved from Pittsburgh to New York City after his first exhibition in 1978. In the metropolis, he then began studying at the School of Visual Arts and got to know hip artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, who is also internationally well known today.

He first gained public interest by spraying political messages and also by tagging. This was later followed by so-called »underground drawing« on New York subways. His style, which is still memorable today, consequently emerged from the graffiti and street art scene.

His significant colourful, strongly reduced stick figures, dogs or UFOs with black borders, which can still be seen in many places on the walls of houses, have a high recognition value. Sculptures following the same figurative patterns were also regularly displayed in public places.

The frequent concentration on primary colours as well as black and white underline his striking style and clearly place his works in the line of more recent Pop Art. In the course of this, he also got to know Andy Warhol, to whom he dedicated his Andy Mouse.

Haring's pop art entered the mainstream by illustrating and supporting various advertising and anti-AIDS campaigns. Later, his stick figures were increasingly used by large fashion chains for textile prints, so that comic art, partly detached from his name, gained an ever wider reach.

Haring campaigned throughout his life for diversity, AIDS education and prevention, and against gentrification. He died in February 1990 at the age of 31 from AIDS.  His untimely death, his commitment to HIV education and the acceptance of diversity, combined with his brightly coloured, youthful-looking, crowd-pleasing comic art, gave him posthumous cult status.

Der Künstler Keith Haring

  • US-amerikanischer Street-Art-Künstler mit Schaffensschwerpunkt in New York.
  • Bedeutender Vertreter der Pop-Art der 1980er-Jahre.
  • Engagierte sich über viele Jahre stark für die HIV-Aufklärung.

Keith Haring, geb. am 04.05.1958 in Reading, Pennsylvania, gest. am 16.02.1990 in New York City war einer der bedeutendsten Künstler der Pop-Art-Szene der 1980er-Jahre. Bereits im Kindesalter interessierte er sich für Kunst und zeichnete gemeinsam mit seinem Vater Comicfiguren.

Nachdem er im Alter von 18 Jahren zunächst ein Studium der Werbegrafik an der Ivy School of Professional Art in Pittsburgh begonnen hatte, wechselte er nach seiner ersten eigenen Ausstellung 1978 seinen Wohnort von Pittsburgh nach New York City. In der Metropole begann er dann ein Studium an der der School of Visual Arts und lernte angesagte Künstler wie den heute international bekannten Jean-Michel Basquiat kennen.

Öffentliches Interesse erlangte er erstmals durch das Sprayen politischer Botschaften sowie durch das Tagging. Später folgte das sogenannte »Subway Drawing« an New Yorker U-Bahnen. Sein bis heute einprägsamer Stil ging folglich aus der Graffiti- und Street-Art-Szene hervor. So haben seine signifikanten bunten, stark reduzierten Strichmännchen, Hunde oder Ufos mit schwarzer Umrandung, die vielerorts noch heute etwa an Häuserwänden zu sehen sind, hohen Wiedererkennungswert.

Auch Skulpturen, die denselben figürlichen Mustern folgen, wurden regelmäßig an öffentlichen Plätzen zur Schau gestellt. Die häufige Konzentration auf Primärfarben sowie Schwarz und Weiß unterstreichen seinen plakativen Stil und fügen seine Werke klar in die Linie der neueren Pop-Art ein. In diesem Zuge lernte er auch die Pop-Art-Größe Andy Warhol kennen, der er seine Andy-Mouse widmete.

Einzug in den Mainstream hielt Harings Pop-Art-Kunst mitunter, indem er verschiedene Werbe- und Anti-AIDS-Kampagnen illustrierte bzw. unterstützte. Später wurden seine Strichmännchen immer häufiger von großen Modeketten für Textilprints verwendet, sodass die Comic-Kunst eine immer größere Reichweite erlangte. So abstrahierte sich die Bedeutung seiner Figuren von der graffiti-inspirierten Szene-Pop-Art hin zur Massenproduktion popkultureller Merchandise-Artikel.

Haring setzte sich zeit seines Lebens für Diversität, AIDS-Aufklärung und -Prävention sowie gegen Gentrifizierung ein. Er starb im Februar 1990 im Alter von 31 Jahren an den Folgen seiner AIDS-Erkrankung.  Sein frühes Ableben sowie sein Engagement in der HIV-Aufklärung und der Akzeptanz von Diversität verliehen ihm in Kombination mit seiner knallig-bunten, jugendlich erscheinenden, massentauglichen Comic-Kunst posthum echten Kultstatus.
