Description

From Wide Walls

In 1982 Keith Haring created his first major outdoor mural on the Houston Bowery Wall in New York City. The iconic mural is one of the street art legends most recognisable public works and is firmly entrenched in the history of graffiti and street art, created using his signature style figures and bold colours. The partner of Keith Haring, Juan Dubose, helped out with the mural, which was created in dedication to the rising art scene in the area. In 2008, the Houston Bowery Wall became a permanent outdoor exhibition space created by Tony Goldman and Jeffrey Deitch, the first new mural being this tribute to the original Keith Haring mural on what would have been his 50th birthday.
