"Make Something From Nothing"

"In the 1990s, a loose-knit group of American artists and creators, many just out of their teens, began their careers. Influenced by the popular underground youth subcultures of the day, such as skateboarding, graffiti, street fashion and independent music, artists like Shepard Fairey, Mark Gonzales, Spike Jonze, Margaret Kilgallen, Mike Mills, Barry McGee, Phil Frost, Chris Johanson, Harmony Korine, and Ed Templeton began to create art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Many had no formal training and almost no conception of the inner workings of the art world, learning their craft through practice, trial and error, and good old-fashioned innovation. Not since the Beat Generation have we seen a group of creative individuals with such a unified aesthetic sense and varied cultural facets. The world of art has been greatly affected by their accomplishments as have the worlds of fashion, music, literature, film, politics and, ironically, athletics. Over the years, the group has matured, and many have become more establishment-oriented; but no matter, their independent spirit has remained steadfast"

"Keith Haring's legacy is all around us. His images are everywhere: on walls, posters, T-shirts, watches - in our memories and imaginations; modern icons. "Art is for everyone!" - this is how Keith Haring put it when he summed up the meaning of his stylized silhouettes with which he decorated streets all over the world. A veritable soul who revolutionised contemporary art over the space of a single decade (1980-1990).
Perhaps the most celebrated personality in the decade of personalities, the 1980s, he built his reputation - as painter, graffiti artist, designer - outside the closed world of the art establishment, amidst the vitality of street culture.
A casualty of the AIDS epidemic at only 31, Haring had already blazed a trail far beyond his American birthplace; from Amsterdam to Australia, Rio de Janeiro to Tokyo."
