Critical Review

Alongside a number of Haring’s most recognisable symbols rendered in his simplistic visual language, the print includes the artist’s radiant baby motif at either side of the print. The symbol first emerged in Haring’s work during his days as a subway artist in New York, where he used the radiant baby in place of his signature, known as his ‘tag’, on public art projects.

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.
