Critical Review

The ‘People Ladder’ motif in Haring’s work has come to represent a tower of break dancers stacked on top of one another to convey a sense of joy and community in a way that reflected the artist’s love of hip hop emerging in New York City in the 1980s. Haring’s use of action lines on either side of the towers and over the heads of the two top figures works to create a sense of excitement in the print and also signifies the figures’ struggle to balance.

Three Lithographs 3 is an example of the way that Haring often depicted groups of figures in interconnected compositions to underline the idea that working together and forming community can be more powerful than working alone. Haring’s use of lithography as a method of printing worked to maintain the crisp edges and opaque sections of colour that make up his signature style, due to lithography’s capacity to produce exceptional detail across hundreds of multiples.
