Keith Haring is best known for his social activist art that was inspired by the streets of urban areas - especially New York City. Public art would become a signature of Haring's as he often displayed his work in subways, streets, etc. Haring also had exhibitions at Club 57, a prolific hangout venue for many artists in the 70's and 80's. Eventually, by 1982, Haring became friends with artists such as Kenny Scharf and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Ultimately, Haring entered The Factory and became good friends with Warhol and the others. He also became the subject of many photos taken during the time by anyone from Pat Hackett to Ronnie Cutrone to Andy Warhol himself.
