One week into the tour and counting, the artists dig into their reserves to pull off another successful day of painting. Day seven of the Sparks IGNITE WHAT'S NEXT art tour took Saber, Dave Choe and Retna to the grand opening of the Upper Playground Berkeley store on Telegraph Ave. The guys signed the usual books and shirts but switched things up a bit for several willing ladies who wanted Saber to sign their stomachs. We wonder how long that will take to wash off? Fans came out for the evening event held at the Radio bar in Oakland. After this, it's on to San Jose for the tour's last Bay Area stop Sunday, September 16th for a day event at Workmens on Eastridge Loop.
To celebrate Keith Haring's retrospective, "The Political Line," opening at the de Young Museum in San Francisco this Fall (November 8, 2014—February 16, 2015), we are proud to close our 20th anniversary year with a cover story on one of the most influential and popular artists ever. Keith Haring is part graffiti, street art, fine art, activist, futurist, environmentalist, and came on the scene with one of the most original styles the world has ever, and will ever see.
