Critical Review

Originally produced as unique works on paper with Sumi ink, Haring displayed these works in a one-week exhibition in Manhattan in 1980 where not a single drawing was sold. However, he did find success in the sale of several blueprint copies of the original drawings and so revisited the subject in 1990, a month before his tragic death creating a portfolio of 17 screen prints of the original images.

Speaking of the difference between his subways drawings and his studio prints Haring has said: ‘I do use a little moral discretion between what I put on the street and what I put on the subway. The things in the studio obviously have more sex. But I think it’s inevitable that the subway drawings have it too because it’s part of my life and part of the rest of the body of work.’
