Keith Haring completed his final print series, Best Buddies, just 10 days before dying from AIDS-related complications in 1990. The Best Buddies motif, which first appeared in Harings work in 1987, depicts two figures hugging, with rays emanating from their embrace. Like many of Harings iconic symbols, Best Buddies is purposefully uncomplicated, inviting viewers to create their own interpretations of the scene. Harings figures have no specified race, gender, or sexual orientation, and they instead appear as anonymous emblems of universal love and acceptance.
Haring dedicated the motif to Best Buddies, a charity that assists people living with developmental disabilitiesand the organization has continued to use this image as its logo ever since. Embodying Harings guiding philosophies about art and activism, Best Buddies is a primary example of the artists enduring impact on the social justice causes that animated his career and life. Signed with the artist's name.
