Tate London looks into pioneering artist Keith Haring’s journals from the 1980s. In them, he muses on art, authority and culture.

Keith started out by decorating New York’s subway system with incredible graffiti. Despite the fact the he was breaking the law, this vigilante approach attracted the attention of the wider art world. His murals, sculptures and paintings became internationally known and the world loved his refreshingly fun and innovative approach when it came to making art. He was a breath of fresh air that rallied against the stuffier old guard of culture and creativity.
