Truly devoted to the idea of public art, Haring drew wherever he went: from the Berlin Wall to the unused advertising space in New York’s subway. Haring’s iconic pop art and graffiti-like style transformed the New York City underground art scene in the 1980s. A member of the LGBTQ community, Haring died tragically at the age of thirty-one from AIDS-related complications. This inspiring, celebratory book honors Haring’s life and art, along with his very special connection with kids. “I would love to be a teacher because I love children and I think that not enough people respect children or understand how important they are.” —Keith Haring. Thoughtfully written by Matthew Burgess, the much-acclaimed author of Enormous Smallness, and illustrated in paint by Josh Cochran, himself a specialist in bright, dense, conceptual drawings, this book is truly a joyful veneration of the transformative power of art.
