"One day Futura and I gave a party at our studio and the Rock Steady Crew came...[they] started dancing which inspired a lot of [Haring's] early work...the moves from the break dances. And I remember it was guys spinning on their heads and stuff. Keith would see that and he would go home and make these works. So he would look at dance and see things, and he would freeze moments in his mind, and go into the studio and paint them. You could feel the movement and rhythm in his work."
Fred Brathwaite, AKA Fab 5 Freddy, in conversation with the Estate of Keith Haring, January 1997
