Keith Haring was a politically and socially engaged artist whose works reflected the major concerns of the time and place he was working. His star burned briefly and brightly in the 1980s before his untimely death at the age of 31 in 1990, from an AIDS-related illness. American-born Haring was heavily influenced by New York street art, and he rose to prominence with his graffiti on the New York subway. He also created collages out of New York Post headlines and used paper, metal and plastic to express his vision.
