Riscoperto il murale nascosto di Keith Haring | Collater.al

A few days ago, Keith Haring’s mural was rediscovered in Amsterdam. It is a work that the American artist completed in two days on one of the facades of the Stedelijk Museum, during his stay in the city for an exhibition.

The mural created only with thick white lines that come in contrast with the brick color of the wall represents a mythical creature with the head of a dog, ridden by one of his famous men.

Built in 1986, the work was covered a few years later with waterproof panels to keep the museum structure intact. When, in 2009, the Stedelijk Museum changed its storage location and the building became a grocery store and distribution center, graffiti legend Aileen Middel, known as Mick La Rock, pushed for the mural to be finally discovered. Now, thanks to her and the help of Jan Willem Sieburgh, manager of the museum and Julia Gruen, director of the Keith Haring Foundation in New York, the mural waits for a new inauguration.
