We can’t tell you how influential New York artist Keith Haring was on the hml team in their formative adolescent years. There was something about his generosity, the confidence of his lines and the pure joy that translated effortlessly into his work. You can view one of his wonderful murals right here in Melbourne town on the wall of NMIT at 35 Johnston St Collingwood.
Keith has been gone for a long while now, 16 yeas already, but the wonderful Haring Foundation have set up a amazing online resource that is proves that his work is still as fresh and inspiring as it was 20 years ago.
