    I guess growing up in NY Im so used to seeing Keith Haring everywhere.. from sides of buildings to his shop on Orchard to a handball court in Bx/upper Manhattan. I think its poppy, I think it looks good and is graphically pleasing. Is it graphic design or fine art? Im not one to say, Im sure thats a big argument about Haring. I think he promoted a lot of good things while he was alive, and I think his grpahics are very effective and to the point for those subjects (drug use, AIDS awareness, etc.). I wouldnt call him a favorite, althou that Apocalypse one is kinda hot.

    That's true, not too sure about "very effective" though. I've seen this man's work before and honestly, I don't get why it's so "prized". Maybe I'm over-exaggerating but it's really plain and it does nothing for me. I don't know... sometimes I just think people are giving out too much credit. It's straight to the point but damn, boring shit. Then again I have no experience in the art world or whatever. Ugh... Unless dude is doing this with his left prosethic foot while playing Yo Yo Ma's version of 2Pac's "Thug's Mansion" on a cassio piano (yes, it has to be a cassio. they have a violin setting) then I am not impressed.

    stupid bitch.

    because i wrote graffiti, and my art teacher knew, she made me do a project on him because he was a "graffiti artist".
    it was a slightly boring project, with lots of cut & paste action.

    i guess 20-something years later it's kind of hard to see how this stuff is cool and graffiti-related and whatnot because he doesn't still write due to dying and he doesn't bite twist. well, i think keith haring made cool shit. he was at the forefront of the safe sex and crack is wack movements when they were most important in the 80s. he did this sweet like, 8 panel mural in the chicago o'hare airport with a bunch of kids from different age levels that looks really cool. he did his thing. can you blame him? i mean, did you get invited to paint the berlin wall or influence decades of artists? Although yeah, when the only images you see are that dog and the two guys hugging over and over, it can get boring. he did other stuff tooo. like other kinds of paintings and drawings and huge sculptures you can play on. i think he's kinda sweet.
