Keith Haring followed in the footsteps of a long but sporadic lineage of twentieth-century artists who introduced elements of popular culture, "low art," and non-art into the formerly exclusive "high art" spaces of museums and galleries. He drew on the techniques and locations of street-based art such as graffiti and murals, used bright and artificial colors, and kept imagery accessible to capture viewers' eyes and minds and get them to enjoy themselves while also engaging with important issues. Haring, along with his contemporaries Jean-Michel Basquiat and Kenny Scharf, paved the way for how seemingly simple and even cartoonish elements by self-taught or less-schooled artists could be appreciated.
