About

This Xerox print is offered by ClampArt, located in New York City. The early 1980s Xerox art movement was comprised of many downtown heavyweights, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kenny Scharf, and Keith Haring. Of the pool of artists utilizing this new printing medium, Haring produced pieces that were some of the most easily recognizable. Using Brion Gysin’s cut-up technique, he would juxtapose photographic imagery alongside rearranged headlines from the right-wing New York Post to convey shocking, yet often humorous messages. These Xeroxes were from Haring’s first public guerrilla art wheatpasting project. Like his more well-known subway chalk drawings that soon followed, this work was abandoned by the artist on NYC streets with few examples surviving. Haring eventually switched from cutting up Post headlines to inventing his own personal iconography.

About the Artist

Keith Haring

Keith Haring began experimenting with his bold, graphic lines and cartoon-inspired figures on the walls of New York City subway stations in the early 1980s. He called them his “laboratory,” places to develop a radical new aesthetic based on an ideology of creating truly democratic public art.Haring’s paintings, prints and murals address the universal themes of death, love and sex, as well as contemporary issues he experienced personally, like the crack-cocaine and AIDS epidemics. They derive much of their impact from the powerful contrast between these serious subjects and the joyful, vibrant pictographic language he uses to express them, full of dancing figures, babies, barking dogs, hearts and rhythmic lines, as well as references to pop culture.To make his art even more accessible, in 1986, Haring opened the Pop Shop in Soho. In a foreshadowing of today’s intermingling of art and fashion, the shop sold merchandise and novelty items featuring imagery by Haring and contemporaries like Kenny Scharf and Jean-Michel Basquiat. While his works sometimes included text, for the most part, he chose to communicate through drawing. “Drawing is still basically the same as it has been since prehistoric times,” Haring once declared. “It lives through magic.”Find Keith Haring art on 1stDibs today.
