Keith Haring

Keith Haring

Keith Haring was an iconic artist who rose to prominence during the '80s. He was best known for his street murals and cartoonish figures. He was diagnosed with AIDS in 1988 and died just two years later.

Unlike many public figures, Haring did not shy away from his AIDS diagnosis. During those last few years of his life, he dedicated himself to raising HIV awareness through his artwork and a foundation he established that still benefits HIV causes to this day.
