Keith Haring
Manhattan Penis Drawings For Ken Hicks

NZ$60.00

Manhattan Penis Drawings for Ken Hicks is a collection of Haring’s drawings from late 1970s in downtown New York. A series of cartoonish penises inspired by the city. Sometimes the inspiration is quite literal, as in a drawing of the Twin Towers reimagined as two erect penises. Other times, the relation is more atmospheric, as in the drawing of a frenzied mass of penises evoking the hustle and bustle of the city but also recalling the dynamism of Futurist painting, captioned “Drawing penises in front of The Museum of Modern Art.”
