Keith Haring⁣ Icons⁣ 1990⁣ “The 5 lithograph series was published in 1990, the same year Keith Haring passed away. These are Haring’s signature characters⁣ as TAG.⁣ The image of the crawling baby is particularly the most common and referenced of his figures. “The Radiant Baby” was to symbolize⁣ and represent youthful innocence, purity, goodness and potential. The character, itself, is a reflection of Haring himself.⁣ “The Dog” is another recognizable and distinguishable character. The barking dog does not generally have explicit symbolism,⁣ though sometimes indicates action taking and suspicion.⁣ “The Angel” addresses not only the presence of spiritual beings and the guardians of human being, but also the complexities of⁣ life, power, and chaos.⁣ The cross, or ‘x’, found on the chest of “The Winged Man” is interpretated as not only marks but death, a cross, to coupling or⁣ representing a sign of mystery.⁣ The “Smiley Face” is another frequently used character found in many of Keith Haring’s works. This icon, the three-eyed face, is⁣ a mysterious figure, often associated with greed and excess. Alternatively, this character has been used to represent the unknown⁣ cosmos and cosmic energy. However, according to Haring himself, “there is no particular meaning” behind this figure.”⁣ #modernart #20thcenturyart #paintings #painting #artlovers #famousartists #famousart #artlegends #masterpieceart #artmasterpieces #thearts #everythingart #arteverything #artislife #artislife e🎨 #dailyart #fineart #arthistorian #arthistorynerd #arthistory #historyofart #artlove #keithharing #haring #haringart #popartist #popart #icons #90sart #80sart
