More information about this artwork

Keith Haring rose to prominence in the New York City art scene as a pop and graffiti artist during the politically and socially turbulent 1980’s. Initially creating simpler images, with emphasis on clean lines and bold colors, he quickly evolved to use his unique iconography to examine difficult issues of the time, incorporating politics and news headlines in his work. Haring ran in the same eclectic circles as many other controversial emerging artists, from Madonna to Basquiat. His life inspired his art – among the most prominent themes in his work were expressions of homosexuality and the AIDS epidemic, from which he would unfortunately die at the young age of 31. Recognized as a prominent social activist and LGBTQ advocate, Haring’s imagery is part of the 20th century visual language.

One of two collaborations with William Burroughs, Apocalypse is part of a series that Keith Haring began shortly after being diagnosed with AIDS. Art experts around the world agree that this iconic series helps give insight into the difficulties that Haring had coming to terms with the disease.
