You may not recognize the name, but I guarantee you recognize the art. Finding spectacular success through the 1980s, Keith Haring is recognized as an artist that created not only art, but a visual language.
Besides being an artist, Haring was also a man who put special effort into the good of others. He is known for donating a considerable amount of his work to charities, hospitals and orphanages. He was friends with Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, and Madonna and is a key figure for 80's pop culture.
