Art: Keith Haring (was a Sneakerhead too!)

Keith Haring has always been a hero of ours here at Manifest Destitute. Not only was his work incredibly appealing but he also had a social purpose for it. Recently a new documentary on his work debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival, and although I couldn't find a way to embed the trailer for it, you can find it here. Christina Clausen's Documentary tittled "The Universe of Keith Haring" offers a personal glimpse into Haring's life, from growing up in a small, conservative Pennsylvania town to the Downtown New York scene of the '80s and the success that turned him into an icon of the 20th Century.

Here's another Documentary called "Drawing the Line" from 1989. Enjoy!
