Known for painting the New York subways and streets with his colorful, graphic imagery, Haring was interested in art as a social cause. He created more than 50 public works in cities around the world, many of them displayed in hospitals, charities and orphanages.
Haring was diagnosed with AIDS in 1988 and passed away two years later; after his initial diagnosis, he founded the Keith Haring Foundation, which still provides funding and imagery to AIDS organizations and children’s programs.
Other brands have also used Haring’s designs for footwear and apparel. Earlier this year, Lacoste tapped his work for a collection; Toms, Alice + Olivia and Tommy Hilfiger have featured his work as well.
