โ€œPainted on a handball court wall, the mural is composed of Haringโ€™s signature kinetic figures and abstract forms in bold outlines. The mural cautions against crack cocaine, whose use reached epidemic proportions in the mid-to-late 1980s.โ€ (nycgovparks)

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA STREET ART: “HARING’S GHOST” ~ CHIP SOUTHWORTH

“The anonymous artist painting city utility boxes in the name of equality, love and Keith Haring has been nabbed…”

is is how the story began in an article on March 19, 2014 posted online atย http://jacksonville.com/news/crime/2014-03-19/story/sheriffs-office-arrests-unmasks-keith-harings-ghost

Here are the only three remaining images in the city of Jacksonville related to this street art triumph. When this particular event occurred in Jacksonville, this is when I started paying attention to the scene there. Anyone that puts beautiful work out there with strong social messages and with an obvious respect for a pioneering iconic artist…is a hero in my book. Not a villain:
