A well-known clothing brand Converse established further cooperation – specifically with Keith Haringem – and brings a charge limited editionwhich projects the idea that we can change the world through our own creativity.
Keith Haring – Unconventional artist
American painter and social activist Keith Haring was born in Pennsylvania in the 1950s and loved to paint comics as a child. After graduating from high school, he moved to New York, where he became acquainted with graffiti, which profoundly influenced his own work. In the 1980s, he filled out black billboards in New York subway stations, and his drawings began to be noticed not only by subway passengers, but also by advertising agencies, commercial museums, and galleries. The colorfulness of his artwork and clear playful compositions reflect the resemblance to indigenous drawings in a unique style of intertwining human and animal figures.
In 1988, Haring was diagnosed with AIDS and succumbed to the disease two years later. However, his works still circulate around the world and inspire thousands of people.
From the New York subway to iconic canvases
The artist, who has fought conventions all his life and sided with the oppressed, is now projecting his art on models of Converse sneakers. For the iconic white Chuck 70, the motif of a well-known human silhouette was chosen with a flower instead of a head and a red detail. Run Star Hike will captivate you with its provocative white drawing and colorful color-blocking on the platform. And last but not least, we also have the Chuck Leather and Chuck All Star models, which are completely covered in his black and white pop art.
However, it does not end with clothing. Converse also presented a limited edition of black and white T-shirts with very interesting prints of Haring’s creations, including the iconic silhouette of a dancer, which became his hallmark. And for the biggest fans of street style, Limitka also offers the popular bucket hat.
All limited collection products are available at select retailers.
