Keith Haring: Subway Drawings

Legendary artist Keith Haring rose to prominence in 1980s New York within the East Village art scene alongside Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kenny Scharf, and Jenny Holzer. He bridged the gap between the art world and the street, graffiting city subways and sidewalks before committing to a studio practice.

Keith Haring drew over 5,000 chalk drawings over a five-year period, from 1980 to 1985, in New York City subway stations (visit the Keith Haring Foundation website to see his work year by year). Since the beginning of his career, Haring was determined to create art that could be for everyone, both through an accessible style and by locating his work in easily reachable, public locations. Creating art on the street meant that a bigger audience could see his work, outside of the more insular space of an art gallery.

We currently have three original Subway Drawings available from a private collection. Each of the pieces is approximately 165cm x 130cm and comes with an exclusive frame. Please contact us to reserve your unique Keith Haring artwork (subject to availability).
