hes so rad-period-end of story. . love that you can still see his shit around town...
Kool was Keith. There is an amazing and huge wall painting in Melbourne, the side of an entire building on Johnston St-south of Smith street in Collingwood...apparently they never paid him for it!
he was one of the first artists that i took a liking to. when i was in junior high i found a keith haring coloring book at a museum bookstore and it changed my life. still have it. thanks for this post.
The next time you're in Kutztown PA (Haring's hometown), there's a substantial Haring sculpture just behind the park/playground in town. It's a quick and easy visit, although not a destination point. The farmer's market is interesting (sometimes) on the weekend, and there's a spot close by that makes a pretty good Ice Cream Soda...
What a cool post! I love his stuff and have never seen these photos before. A friend of mine has a signed Haring print. When I commented on it the first time I was at his house he said he didn't know who the guy was but that the print had been his dad's and he kind of liked it so he just happened to keep it instead of dropping it at Goodwill! The poker game that had been in progress came to a complete hault due to my horror at this admission. At least now he knows not to put it on the curb if he ever gets bored with it!
