Keith Haring

Keith Haring was an American artist and social activist whose work responded to the New York City street culture of the 1980s. Often his style is referred to as Modern PopArt. He became famous while drawing chalk drawing in the subways of New York.

I like the simple way he is doing his illustration. Basic colours (red, green, yellow and blue) and bold black outlines using a directness message. He is mainly dealing with social themes like aids, discrimination, love, sex, death and war.
