This lot consists of a HAND PAINTED Acrylic and Ink on paper, Hand Signed "K. Haring" and dated "88" with a small crosshair symbol. Image depicts three anonymous, colorful figures carefully balanced on one another's shoulders. Together, they are working on a simple and upbeat message: "HANG IN THERE". The figures almost seem to have invaded the space in order to leave their mark. Their work is precarious, but bold. Creates a great mood of perseverance and cooperation. Label en verso gives documentation by the "Martin Lawrence Galleries" which lists the artist as "Haring" and the medium as "Ink/Acrylic". Also, the cardboard backing is cut away to reveal an ink stamped "Certificate of Authenticity by the Keith Haring Estate", the stamp is dated and signed although the signature is largely eligible. This pop art painting is done in the modern graffiti street art style of Keith Haring (American, 1958 -1990). Framed piece measures approximately 13" x 16" overall.
Approx. Overall =13" x 16" / Sight = 10.75" x 13.75".
