FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Alien Workshop is pleased to announce a collaboration with the Keith Haring Studio.
As a skateboard brand that has evolved since it’s inception in 1990, Alien Workshop has become known for bold and challenging graphic concepts. This collaboration could not find a better pairing aesthetically and conceptually. It is our aim to further Haring’s message through our work.
Keith Haring was an artist and activist who frequently used his art to speak out about social issues.
He was one of the best known among the young artists, filmmakers, performers and musicians
whose work responded to urban street culture of the 80s. Diagnosed with AIDS in 1988, Haring established the Keith Haring Foundation in 1989 to provide funding and imagery to AIDS organizations, and to ensure that his philanthropic legacy would continue indefinitely.
The Keith Haring Foundation’s mission is to sustain, expand and protect the legacy of Haring’s art and his ideals. The Foundation supports organizations that assist underprivileged children, as well as those engaged in education, research and care with respect to AIDS and HIV.
