Happy land: The cheerful art of street culture s most famous proponentBy the time of his death from AIDS at the age of 31, Keith Haring (1958 1990) was already a wildly successful and popular artist.

In 1986, Haring founded Pop Shop, a boutique in New York s SoHo neighborhood selling Haring-designed memorabilia, to benefit charities and help bring his work closer to the public and especially street kids, with whom he never lost contact.About the series: Each book in TASCHEN s Basic Art series features: a detailed chronological summary of the life and oeuvre of the artist, covering his or her cultural and historical importance a concise biography approximately 100 illustrations with explanatory captions

   Keith Haring
I saw Haring's work when they first appeared in the subway stations I took to school every day. Nobody knew who commented on them, but everybody knew who was doing them. He did not reveal who he was for a long time, as the drawings would mysteriously change. It focused only on the themes that became famous. I think they could only show his commercial material since his subway art was ephemeral.

   For a "New" book it looks VERY "used"
Arrived with no cover or shrink wrap with non-print ink smudges on the spine of the book, additionally the main binding is loose and book lining uneven, clearly a manufacturing defect or a customer return. Note : This vender has just tainted the quality and experience of Taschen publications with this particular product.

   Be warned.
If you love Keith Haring's art, you will love this book. But if you think that this is different than the original, you will be disappointed except for size, it is a little smaller.
