This is from a pamphlet I have from a Haring exhibit at Matrix in
New York City in 1983
The beginning is the quote and then there is a little history bio
about him afterwards. At some point i'll scan, if any of you want
it. Keith Haring was just 25 at the time of this show.
"...My contribution to the world is my ability to draw. I will draw
as much as I can for as many people as I can for as long as I can.
Drawing is still basically the same as it has been since prehistoric
times. It brings together man and the world. It lives through
magic."
Keith haring, 1982
Documenta 7, vol. 2, p.144
I saw him later that year Dec.Jan- and have a poster from a show at
Tony Shafrazi's gallery, who represented him. It is signed and as
generous as he was, he gave me five more posters- 3 of which I gave
away. Hard to believe he was only 3 years older than me and how long
it's been since he's gone.
