Keith Haring

Ok, this is just wierd - back to back posts about people who died of AIDS? Guess so. Anyways, this year marks the 20th anniversary of Keith Harings passing. For those who don't know, Keith Haring is synonymous with the downtown New York art scene of the 1980's. His artwork-with its simple, bold lines and dynamic figures in motion-filtered in to the world's consciousness and is still instantly recognizable, twenty years after his death. For those participating in the Aids Walk this year, (and if you raise at least $50), you get this sick limited edition(obviously) Obey designed shirt paying homage to the legendary artist. If you can't make it out to New York, check out the Keith Haring Pop Shop - lot of good finds there, from books, to shirts, to random household accessories.
