OBEY x Keith Haring Eyes

Available online by the end of the week we have the latest drop from OBEY, including some of the collab pieces with the Keith Haring foundation. Keith Haring, who was a massive influence on OBEY founder Shepard Fairey, was a contemporary artist based in New York in the 70's and 80's.

In the 80's his art took him to a level of international fame and he was then also was known as an activist and public figure. His work was a strong example of early downtown New York graffiti subculture and devoted much of his time to public works.

In 1988 he was diagnosed with the HIV virus and established the Keith Haring foundation in 1989 to provide funding and imagery to AIDS organisations and childrens programmes. In 1990 he sadly passed away but his legacy lives on in his art and his foundation. The Keith Haring Eyes sweat and tee from OBEY are a collaboration with the foundation using one of Haring's most popular images.
