To avoid any further confusion, we are in support of REPAINTING the Keith Haring mural because it was Keith’s intention to have it be a permanent fixture in Melbourne, for all to enjoy.
Lend us your support!!

Keith’s thoughts on the life of his works can be considered in light of an interview he gave a few years later in 1988 to the Columbia University Art Review: “All of the things that you make are a kind of quest for immortality. Because you’re making these things that you know have a different kind of life. They don’t depend on breathing, so they’ll last longer than any of us will. Which is sort of an interesting idea, that it’s sort of extending your life to some degree.”
