Aug 20, 2008Meggs: Zombidore & Tribute to Keith Harring
Nice new work from the House of Meggs. Also, a nice touching small piece on the legendary Keith Harring, and his work on a building site that’s for sale, which leaves the state of the Harring piece there uncertain. There’s talk of restoration or just leaving it to the elements. I agree with Meggs sentiments: restore it please. This mural is way more important than it seems, and it’s history is priceless.
Keith Haring died of AIDS related complications at the age of 31 on February 16, 1990. Since his death, Haring has been the subject of several international retrospectives. The work of Keith Haring can be seen today in the exhibitions and collections of major museums around the world.
