Catalogue Note

Haring’s aesthetic was influenced by New York City’s budding graffiti culture, of which he soon became a prominent part of. The present work blends his traditional style with the iconography present in the Pop Art cannon. By drawing on top of a mass produced print of Marilyn Monroe, a favorite subject of Andy Warhol, Haring fuses the ethos of the burgeoning street art scene with the legacy of Pop, the influence of which he would continue to explore in endeavors such as the Pop Shop and his working with fashion brands.
