Keith Haring’s art transfers from subway stop to tabletop with the visually stunning K.Haring Tray. Its spacious surface not only serves as a platform for rolling and mixing material, but as a canvas for Haring’s pared-down palette and thought-provoking imagery.
Contrasting colors and bold, shifting lines are blanketed with an exceptionally clear, ultra white glass. The underside of the Tray is stamped with Keith Haring’s distinguished signature.
A durable box equipped with foam inserts safely houses the K.Haring Tray. The packaging’s durable walls are adorned with Haring’s artistry and signature. This tray is hand wash only—do not machine wash.
Keith Haring was a famous American street artist. His 1980’s graffiti-inspired drawings, made in New York City subway stations marked a generation and beyond. Firstly, he was interested in the colorful and subversive graffiti art of the city’s streets. Haring's signature images included dancing figures, a crawling infant emitting rays of light, a barking dog, a flying saucer, large hearts, and figures with televisions for heads.
Most importantly, Haring’s work expressed concepts of birth, death, sexuality, and war. He was openly gay and was a strong advocate of safe sex. Secondly, his work turned to focus on AIDS awareness when he contracted the disease. He also established the Keith Haring Foundation to provide funding and imagery to AIDS organizations and children’s programs. Haring died by1990, but his art and influence remain legendary throughout the world.
Haring’s work has a timeless effect on popularizing pop art and “low art” within the “high art” scene. The honesty, truth and broad-reaching approachability of his works will remain integral to consider. In short, his name will always be at the forefront of a more permissive and progressive culture.
