The MMOB Daily Quote - Keith Haring

Today's MMOB Daily Quote is focused on social activist and artist Keith Haring (May 4, 1958 – February 16, 1990).

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

“Red is one of the strongest colors, it's blood, it has a power with the eye. That's why traffic lights are red I guess, and stop signs as well... In fact I use red in all of my paintings.”

“Drawing is still basically the same as it has been since prehistoric times. It brings together man and the world. It lives through magic.”

“When it is working, you completely go into another place, you're tapping into things that are totally universal, completely beyond your ego and your own self. That's what it's all about.”

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