Iconic pop artist Keith Haring comes to life for young readers in this picture book biography lovingly written by his sister This one of a kind book explores the life and art of Keith H. I remember watching Sesame Street and Nickelodeon as a kid and so I remember Keith Haring s dogs They were these odds serial characters made entirely out of thick black lines who would bark and then alter the reality of the world sometimes in small sometimes in incredibly large ways These dogs showed me early on that art could be a way of playing with the world around me that it could be a way to observe and change my universe in any way I saw fit and most importantly they taught me that great art should just be about playingKay Haring has written a beautiful book that makes a lasting testament to her brother Keith who s influence is still being felt today And best of all her book captures her brother s life and aesthetic in a way that children will enjoy The reader who reads The Boy Who Just Kept Drawing to their children will instill in them the idea that art is supposed to be about fun Rather than about ego or aesthetic philosophy art is about creating and not caring about what the culture or society tries to make the artist into Creation is the way foster and encourage imagination which is ultimately what drives innovation and change This is a fun beautiful book about a gay man who created something uniue not because he cared about artistic legacy or aesthetic significance but because he simply wanted to drawI loved this book

review Keith Haring

Aring from his childhood through his meteoric rise to fame It sheds light on this important artist's great humanity his concern for children and his disregard for the establishment art. Even though this book is a little young for my readers I picked it because I have a real soft spot for Keith Haring I was in college living on East 7th Street in the East Village when Keith hit the streets of NYC with his art And it was everywhere Each morning I would leave for school and there would be new Keith Haring art wherever you looked Now Keith s younger sister Kay has written a moving biography about here brother s too short life Even as a boy Keith drew everywhere on paper on tests in his clubhouse and in his room as a teenage while listening to loud music In high school after winning first prize for his art he was offered money by someone who wanted to buy the winning drawing Keith refused the money and told the person they could just have it That s who he was someone who felt everyone should be able to enjoy his art a belief that never wavered when he went to art school in Pittsburgh and later when he moved to New York City in 1980 After drawing his signature figures all over the city on sidewalks in chalk on garbage cans in paint on discarded furniture on the sides of buildings and in subway stations Keith began to be noticed and his art became a world wide phenomenaIt s clear his sister really loved her brother very much and knew him well The repetition of he just kept drawing almost begins to feel like an understatement when you look at the illustrations depicting the preponderance of his art on so many different surfaces I loved Robert Neubecker s complimentary illustrations of Keith s life done without imitating his style but keeping to the same kind of humor and lightness found in Keith s art and yes Mr Neubecker I also have fond memories of the 1980s downtown art sceneThe 1980s was indeed an exciting time in NYC but it was also a time of tragedy with the AIDS epidemic that took so many creative people So be sure to read the Author s Note and additional information in the About Keith Haring section to learn about his early death from AIDS related complications and the Keith Haring Foundation he established in 1989 This pat of Keith Haring s life was difficult to explain to my young readers who had a hard time grasping the magnitude of the AIDS epidemic
