Today marks the posthumous 54th birthday of Keith Haring, who is without doubt my favourite graffiti artist.
You may notice one of my headline photos is a close-up detail of one of his pieces from downtown NY. Famous for his ‘everyman’ cartoons he even ventured down under and graffiti’d a wall that belongs to RMIT (formerly the Collingwood Technical College) which you can still vaguely see the remains of behind the Tote Hotel on the corner of Johnston and Wellington Streets, Collingwood.
An article on that piece which happens to be the last remaining mural in Australia can be found here.
