I never get tired of looking at the work of Keith Haring.  Skarstedt Gallery in Chelsea, New York has unearthed 5 rarely seen works of the late master in their exhibit “Heaven and Hell.”

Do you think Keith Haring would have made advertising for a mattress store?

The “Group Graff” show at Dorian Grey Gallery in New York is both interesting and perplexing all at the same time.  As an avid lover of street art, it’s always great to see works in person by Banksy and Keith Haring.  Mixing those legendary names with some relatively unknowns who are allegedly making an impact on the street scene (at least according to the press release), was a bit confusing to me.  Keep in mind, I enjoyed seeing the art and would recommend this exhibit to fans of street art, but in some cases, a cropped photograph of a graffiti tag is more expensive than purchasing an original work of art from the actual street artist!

Did the curator just happen upon a stack of street art and decide to launch an exhibit or was there more thought involved?  That’s for you to decide.   I think that putting a work of art by Banksy and one by imitator Hanksy in the same room is a crime!   If you need help curating next time, please give me a call!  An international fan base of readers will agree that I know what I am talking about!

The artists featured in the show are: Keith Haring, LA 2, Futura, Richard Hambleton, COPE 2, & CRASH, Bansky and DOLK, XAM, SeeOne, Penn & AVone.

“Group Graff” runs until May 16, 2012 at Dorian Grey Gallery in New York (located at 437 East 9th Street at Avenue A).

If you’re a fan of Keith Haring and you are in the New York area, you’re about to hit the mother-lode.  The Brooklyn Museum has a fantastic exhibit of Keith Haring’s work focusing on the early part of his career from 1978 – 1982.  You’ll see sketches, journal pages, subway drawings, videos, still photos and many of these works have never been displayed in public before.

Videos from his time at the School of Visual Arts are also on display and if you’re a big Haring fan, you’ll be really excited to see footage of the infamous performance of Keith Haring “painting himself into a corner.”

Somehow, they were able to preserve dozens of Haring’s infamous subway drawings and there’s an entire room dedicated to the chalk drawings, including one that was done in collaboration with Jean-Michel Basquiat.
