What are fellow art enthusiast opinions on Haring?


I enjoy the "playful" visual quality of Haring's work, and his use of vibrant primary colors. That's purely from an aesthetic perspective.

But, I very much respect the socio-political mission behind his work. He did a great deal for HIV/AIDS awareness and support programs which has benefited tens of thousands of individuals and continues to do so.

I once went to the Museum of Modern art in San Francisco with an old girlfriend. The beautiful Haring statue is in the front and a few select pieces inside expressing some typical Haring birth and death imagery. The only thing the woman I was dating could say was that the "pictures" were silly and childish . . . and that signaled the end of that
