Influenced by the burgeoning graffiti culture of 1980s New York as well as the history of outsider art and Art Brut, Keith Haring was known for his use of cartoon-like figures in black outline and flat, vibrant color. This print was created for the International Youth Year, declared 1985 by the United Nations as recognition of the importance of young people in shaping the world of tomorrow. Here, one of his signature characters, holding a contorted pose, shakes with vibrant energy.
