Description - Art Is Life: The Life of Artist Keith Haring by Tami Lewis Brown
Keith Haring believed that art should be enjoyed by everyone, not just those with the money or inclination to visit museums. When Keith moved to New York City in 1978, he rode the subway and noticed that the crowds were bored and brusque, and the subways were decayed and dreary. He thought the people of New York needed liberating, illuminating, and radiating art. So he bought a stick of white chalk and started drawing. . .
This picture book biography explores Keith Haring's life and shows why his art continues to resonate with people. You can still see his ubiquitous designs gracing billboards, posters, clothing, and more. Keith Negley's bold, energetic illustrations evoke Keith Haring while maintaining a style all their own.
