Keith Haring (1958 - 1990) was an important late 20th Century American artist. Moving to New York post art school he enrolled in the School of Visual Arts (SVA). He thrived in the alternative art community of the streets and became famous for his subway station murals completed on unused advertising panels that were covered with matt black paper. Haring's first solo exhibition was in 1981 and by 1986 he was able to open his own store, the Pop Shop selling products bearing his images. Although Haring died tragically young at the age of just 31 his prodigious output during such a short working life is extraordinary to contemplate and has influenced a generation of street artists.
