About Keith Haring Shirts
Art and activism join forces using graphics you may have sped past on the subway. Keith Haring shirts show the artist's love of cartoons, with primitive line drawings that have vigor and vitality. Some of the T-shirt designs display prints similar to the white chalk drawings Haring created on unused advertising panels on the New York subway system. The rapid, rhythmic lines have a seamless flow and depict stylized images of barking dogs, crawling babies, and dancing people. Equally striking are the more colorful graphics on 100 percent cotton Keith Haring shirts, such as the suited man with green skin and planet earth where his head should be. The Keith Haring Foundation, established in 1989, circulates the artist's work in a number of ways, including T-shirts, to help provide grants to children in need and those affected by HIV/AIDS. This carries on the public work Haring performed before his death in 1990. You can find new and vintage Keith Haring shirts with several fun prints, such as the DJing dog scratching at his turntables, among the vast inventory on eBay.
