Description

"To me, Keith was an artist entirely and truly of his own era. The themes he addressed in his work ranged from mass technology, televangelism, and sexuality to greed, poverty, violence, and racism. Watching him draw or paint in the studio, which I did on a daily basis...I was awed by the incredible fluency and confidence of his line and unadulterated pleasure he took in expressing himself regardless of scale...With a passion to reach out and to be completely honest." 

Gianni Mercurio, "Keith Haring. In the Moment" in Exh. Cat., Fondazione Triennale di Milano, The Keith Haring Show, 2005-2006, pp. 32-35
