Story and Details

Of all the ads I've come across - and framed - this is probably the one I enjoy the most hanging in our home. That's because we have kids. Although it's totally a watch ad, those watches are sorta hidden. They're camouflaged among the colorful characters, in letter form and cartoon form, widely known as the language and artistic style of Keith Haring. Keith's life and art are bold, fun, thought-provoking, impactful, you name it... Certainly one goal of his art was to bring people together. And that's exactly what this ad does for our family. It represents my passion for watches and our children's interest in drawing. And although they don't realize it, they're in the midst of a powerful art form that may influence them in a number of ways as they get older... But for now, it's a bright pop of color that looks right at home in our gallery of finger paintings, coloring, and doodles. I think Keith would love seeing his art on display alongside the prolific work of our kids. Of course, this original ad from 1986, doesn't just feature Haring's famous dancing, radiating figures. At the heart of this ad is his original "Limited Edition" collaboration with Swatch. A collab perfectly timed with the opening of his Pop Shop in SoHo. This ad definitely takes you back to a wild and fascinating time in the art world... A scene where you could easily rub shoulders with the likes of Basquiat, Warhol, Madonna, Blondie, and other famous artists, musicians, and celebrities of the 1980s. What a stage to witness... And what incredible, vibrant art you could acquire before it exploded in value. At least there's this original Haring advertisement I can afford. Which for me, is just as good as any signed lithograph.

    The print itself is far more crisp and well-preserved in person than I had anticipated. If my ad is any indicator, which by its age I can assume it is, it appears that Nick has taken pains to select only the finest examples available. The framing is top notch. From the beveling on the border, to the hanging wire on the back, it is obvious that no effort was spared. Communication was excellent and shipping was prompt. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend AdPatina. I look forward to seeing this on my wall for decades to come. Really, really good stuff.
