Happy land
The cheerful art of street culture’s most famous proponent

By the time of his death from AIDS at the age of 31, Keith Haring (1958–1990) was already a wildly successful and popular artist. Haring’s original and instantly recognizable style, full of thick black lines, bold colors, and graffiti-inspired cartoon-like figures, won him the appreciation of both the art world and the general public; his work appeared simultaneously on T-shirts, gallery walls, and public murals. In 1986, Haring founded Pop Shop, a boutique in New York’s SoHo neighborhood selling Haring-designed memorabilia, to benefit charities and help bring his work closer to the public and especially street kids, with whom he never lost contact.
