Keith Haring Hand Signed Tony Shafrazi Exhibit Poster with Original Drawing 1989

$8,450

About

A rare hand-signed and dated Keith Haring offset lithograph exhibition poster with an original drawing/ doodle by Haring. The poster was personally designed by Harring himself for his show at Tony Shafrazi Gallery in New York that ran from December 3rd, 1988 to January 7th, 1989. The photo-collage design features Harring himself as a baby in the bubble that appears about to burst (perhaps symbolic as Haring was diagnosed that very same year with AIDS and likely knew his time was limited). The work is dated 1989 (the year before his tragic and untimely death in 1990 at age of 31). It is signed in ink pen and features an original figurative drawing by Haring at the lower edge. A good, colorful and rich impression on heavy paper. Would be an amazing addition to any modern art collection or eye-catching stand-alone work in about any setting. Haring is widely considered one of the most important and revered artists of the 20th century. His works can be found in many prominent private and public collections and museums including: The Museum of Modern Art The Morgan Library and Museum The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City Los Angeles County Museum of Art The Art Institute of Chicago The Bass Museum in Miami Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris The Brant Foundation Art Study Center in Greenwich, Connecticut The Carnegie Museum of Art The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh The Ludwig Museum in Cologne The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam Since 2007, his works have been featured exclusively at The Nakamura Keith Haring Collection in Hokuto, Yamanashi, Japan Framed dimensions: 25.75" high, 34.75" wide, 1" deep.

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.”
