"The images are part of the collective consciousness of modern man. Sometimes they stem from world events, sometimes from ideas about technology or people changing roles in relation to God and evolution. All of the drawings use images that universally “readable”. They are are often inspired by popular culture."
KEITH HARING Henry Geldzahler, Art in Transit: Subway Drawings, New York 1984
The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate.
This work is in very good condition. Each sheet is hinged to the backing board on the upper two corners. There is some light fading to the felt tip pen ink, which is in keeping with the artist's choice of medium. Only visible when examined out of their frames, there are unobtrusive nicks to the extreme corner tips of the sheets, and artist's pinholes to some of the corners.
