What is the Radiant Baby? Keith Haring (1958-1990)

The Radiant Baby is the tag of Keith Haring, pop/street artist of the 1980s. Haring said of the baby, "Babies represent the possibility of the future, the understanding of perfection, how perfect we could be. There is nothing negative about a baby, ever...The reason that the "baby" has become my logo or signature is that it is the purest and most positive experience of human existence."

-- Influences include: Pierre Alcehinksky, Leger, Olitski, Jackson Pollock
