Critical Review

Speaking of the print, Shriver has commented, “It is hard to imagine any artist who could have captured the spirit and mission of Best Buddies better than the Pop Artist Keith Haring. His artwork is so simple and spot-on in capturing the concepts of friendship, togetherness and one person helping another.”

Rendered in Haring’s trademark figurative style, Best Buddies is a colourful representation of one-to-one affection and acceptance. Rays emanate from the figures’ embrace and rich, block colours are used to create an image bursting with joy. Much like many of Haring’s works, Best Buddies is deliberately uncomplicated in its message and allows the viewers to create their own interpretations of the image.
