Masters of the Subway: Keith Haring

Keith Haring became famous for his iconic “radiant baby” drawings and for his large pop art murals. He first caught the public’s attention, though, by doing chalk drawings in New York City’s subway. Below is a collection of photos of Haring and this body of work.

Haring died of AIDS in February of 1990. After he was diagnosed he created the Keith Haring Foundation to provide funding to AIDS organizations. The Foundation is still around today and hard at work raising awareness and bringing attention to the matter. Today happens to be World AIDS Day. In honor of Keith Haring and the countless others whose lives were taken by this disease, please consider donating or contributing to the cause in some way. Thank you!
