This signed colour lithograph from 1986 is a limited edition of 85 by Keith Haring. Featuring an energetic figure conjoined at the head and with two bodies, Untitled (Double Man) is rendered through the use of bold, dark outlines and a flat, saturated red backdrop, representative of Haring's iconic style.
This vibrant image is bursting with movement as Haring depicts each body moving in opposite directions but constrained by the shared head in the centre. Each limb of the figure’s body is bent at an almost right angle to create symmetry across the picture plane and at a glance the print’s subject is ambiguous. The kinetic energy of the print is emphasised by Haring’s use of lines that radiate from the figure, and the spotted ground beneath.
In many of Haring’s works, the artist depicted dancing and moving figures to evoke fun, joy and energy as a reflection of his life in New York City and love of Studio 54. Untitled (Double Man) shows action lines emanating from the figure to emphasise this sense of movement and dance, something that Haring became very interested in as a means to communicate elation and togetherness.
