Кит Харинг — американский художник, скульптор и общественный деятель.


„Мой вклад в жизнь мира — моё умение рисовать. Я буду рисовать, сколько могу, для стольких людей, для скольких могу, так долго, как смогу.“

„Искусство — это то, что освобождает душу, провоцирует воображение и побуждает людей идти дальше. Art should be something that liberates the soul, provokes the imagination and encourages people to go further.“


„Я не думаю, что искусство должно что-то пропагандировать; его предназначение — освобождать душу, будить воображение, вдохновлять человека на большее. Не манипулировать человечеством, а раскрывать его лучшие качества.“

„Нет ничего важного… Поэтому важно всё.“

„You have to be objective about money to use it fairly. It doesn't make you any better or any more useful than any other person. Even if you use your money to help people... that doesn't make you better than somebody who has no money but is sympathetic and genuinely loving to fellow human beings.“ Keith Haring Journals

„Art should be something that liberates your soul, provokes the imagination and encourages people to go further.“

„Nothing is important... so everything is important.“ Keith Haring Journals

„Good and Evil are very hard to explain or understand. I'm sure that evil exists, but it is hard to isolate. Good and evil are intertwined and impossible to separate. They are not completely opposites and in fact are often one and the same.“ Keith Haring Journals


„Children know something that most people have forgotten.“ Journals

„Keith Haring wrote " You see that's why I work like a dog and I worked like a dog all my life. I am not interested in the academic status of what I am doing because my problem is my own transformation. Thats the reason also why, when people say. " Well you thought this a few years ago and now you say something else," my answer is[laughter]" well, do you think that I have worked like that all those years and not be changed?" This transformation of ones self by ones own knowledge is, I think something rather close to the aesthetic experience. Why should a painter work if he is not transformed by his own painting.“

„The public has a right to art
The public is being ignored by most contemporary artists.
...
Art is for everybody.
...
I am interested in making art to be experienced and explored by as many individuals as possible with as many different individual ideas about the given piece with no final meaning attached. The viewer creates the reality, the meaning, the conception of the piece.“
Keith Haring Journals

„See, when I paint, it is an experience that, at its best, is transcending reality.“


„This, I feel, is the advantage to creating art at this point in time: When we realize that we are temporary, we are facing our self-destruction, we are realizing our fate and we must confront it. Art is the only sensible primal response to an outlook of possible destruction (obliteration).“ Keith Haring Journals

„I am a necessary part of an important search to which there is no end.“

„July 7, 1986: Montreux
It is only now that I realize the importance of a biography. I mean I always have realized that I enjoy to read (and have learned many things from) the biographies of artists whom I admire. It is probably my main source of education. In the beginning of my “career” (what an awful word) I was misled by a teacher who thought the things I was writing to be pretentious and self important. Years later, when I read those things I wrote in 1978, it didn’t seem so pretentious for almost everything I wrote about “wanting to do,” I actually did in the four or five years that followed.“
Keith Haring Journals

„There is one question George is asked about life and art and which is more important, and
George said art is more important because it is immortal. This struck a very deep note inside me. For I am quite aware of the chance that I have or will have AIDS.
The odds are very great and, in fact, the symptoms already exist. My friends are dropping like flies and I know in my heart that it is only divine intervention that has kept me alive this long. I don’t know if I have five months or five years, but I know my days are numbered.
This is why my activities and projects are so important now. To do as much as possible as quickly as possible. I’m sure that what will live on after I die is important enough to make sacrifices of my personal luxury and leisure time. Work is all I have and art is more important than life.“
Keith Haring Journals
