Artist Research – Keith Haring


Keith Haring is an American Graffiti Artist, Sculptor, and Muralist, who is known for the graffiti of cartoonish human figure. I was inspired by one of Haring’s works called Untitled (1982), which shows his boldness of representing homosexual love in that time period. Usually, Haring dose art in flat, two-dimensional surface, and saturated colors. So, I decided to turn his art into a three-dimensional surface and eliminate the saturated colors except for the red. The reason for keeping the red on the heart is that I wanted to place more emphasis on the love between humans instead of keep arguing about what is right what is wrong.
