Kees Haring


Documentary on Keith haring, with some nice footage I didn't see before. The arrest part is very funny. As is Grace Jones' bodypaint performance...
Most of it is from 1981/1982, and interesting to see the parallels with today's STREETART or whatever you want to call it. From glueing images on the street to drawing on billboards, from friction with traditional graffiti to watering down images to gimmicky proportions to print it on mugs, t-shirts placemats and bedsheets for the mainstream; full circle once again.

See it here



Oh..and something about one of Haring's last existing outdoor murals in Amsterdam here.
