TAKING PRIDE IN KEITH HARING
CELEBRATING THE NYC GRAFFITI LEGEND
Working closely with the Keith Haring Foundation, we created a series of limited edition skateboard art pieces which celebrate the legendary New York street culture icon. Haring’s work advocated for safe sex and AIDS charities. Love for Haring has lived on long after he died of the disease in 1990, and we’ve been thinking alot about him during Pride month. It’s time to spread the love for this great artist once again. Discover the editions
