Street art supports the hope in sick children

September 20th, 2014 got to know that France Post has prepared a new issue honoring Keith Haring - one of the most influential pop art and street art American artists. He is very popular not only in the USA but also in France. The stamp depicts the only work of Keith Haring that was made in France. The item was released and put into circulation on the 19th of September.

Keith Haring desired all his life to make art accessible for everyone. His style is recognizable by its silhouettes outlined in black, mixed with bright colors.

The huge mural 27 feet high made in 1987 on the fire escape of Necker Hospital in Paris is the only outdoor monumental work of Keith Haring in France.

It reflects the commitment of the artist to children. It is symbol of life, joy and hope for the young patients at the Necker hospital. The fresco depicts moving silhouettes that embody the energy and the will to live.
