Reminiscent of his iconic Pop Shop series, Keith Haring's Untitled 1987 comprises of four prints, each depicting various figures and symbols that are familiar to Haring's work. The prints are all screen prints on paper, with a vibrant and saturated color palette. They vary in size, with some measuring H 30cm x W 21cm and others measuring H 43cm x W 52cm.
One of the most prominent themes in this particular collection is Haring's interest in figuration and body language. In this, the works have a universal approach and can be interpreted across borders of language, race, class, and sexuality. The figures in these prints are depicted in various poses, with some examples jumping, dancing, or expressively interacting with one another. Haring's use of bold and simple lines creates a sense of movement and dynamism, giving the figures a sense of energy and vitality.
Executed in simple primary colours, and depicting naively rendered figures, Untitled 1987 is tantamount to Haring's entire oeuvre. Through his use of bold and playful imagery, Haring was able to convey complex ideas and emotions in a way that was accessible to a broad audience. Haring designed his figures and symbols to be understood by all, regardless of their age and identity.
This collection of screenprints from 1987 is a testament to Haring's enduring legacy as Pop Artist who used his work to comment on the socio-political issues of his time. As such, these works epitomise a crucial moment in the history of art, culture, and society.
