keith haring’s “10 commandments”

To start off, I love Keith Haring’s work.  His playful and colorful approach to art is right up my alley – as much as I can appreciate a lot of the Impressionist works, they simply don’t do it for me.  And although completed 23 years ago, the “Ten Commandments” installation will finally be shown in New York City.

Apparently, Haring interpreted the 10 commandments metaphorically rather than literally, and even putting a twist on a few.  For the Commandment, “Thou shall not steal”, Haring decided instead to portray the antithesis – depicting someone stealing.  According to Freshness, the exhibition ended the 28th of December but if it is coming to your area, check it out!
