Tuttomondo - Keith Haring

In 1989, when he painted his mural Tuttomondo on the wall of the Servi di Maria convent beside the Church of S. Antonio, Keith Haring left the final trace of his art to Pisa. This artist, born in Reading in 1958, who died in New York in 1990, soon became a name on the international art scene. His creative genius first expressed itself in America’s suburbs: Haring used chalk to draw on empty subway billboards and painted his early murals on the walls of abandoned buildings. His art was free, created for everybody. By breaking away from art galleries, the work of art entered daily life and reached the remotest parts of cities that, from being anonymous and grey, became festive and dynamic.
