Phillips auction house is hosting a presentation entitled “Keith Haring: Falling Up” at the new K11 MUSEA Art & Culture Centre in Hong Kong. The showcase encompasses a selection of Haring’s significant works including paintings, drawings, painted aluminum sculptures and a series of memorabilia that is available for purchase through Phillips’ private sales.

Miety Heiden, Deputy Chairman and Head of Private Sales, Phillips, expressed: “One of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century, Keith Haring achieved new heights by redefining how the public engaged with and understood fine art. From his monumental public projects to his iconic prints, he blurred the division between ‘high’ and ‘low’ culture in the remarkable body of work he executed before his untimely death at only 31 years old.”

Highlights include a painted terracotta work, Haring’s ‘Meatloaf Drawing for Meals on Wheels’ which the artist made back in 1987, and an aluminum sculpture of Haring’s unmissable ‘Dancing Figures.’ In conjunction with “Keith Haring: Falling Up,” Phillips will launch a documentary that examines the artist’s life and career, titled Keith Haring: Street Art Boy, at K11 MUSEA’s outdoor immersive venue Sunken Plaza on October 10. Visit Phillips’ website for more information.

Elsewhere in art, Jay Awesum shows us his impressive collection of KAWS, Paul Insect and Takashi Murakami pieces.
