Fans of streetwear are undoubtedly familiar with Keith Haring‘s work. The late artist was amongst the most prolific of his contemporaries and across T-shirts, sneakers, and even preserved walls in cities, Haring’s legacy of creation continues to live on.

This important exhibition opened last week and runs through August.
