Estimate by Auctionata Expert: 5,000 Euro

L.A. II�s artistic output is deeply inspired by the graffiti tradition that had first emerged in the United States in the 1960s. Keith Haring�s symbolist and comic-like style is considered as his greatest source of artistic impact and results from dense clouds of lines and symbols. The present painting is titled �Away� and depicts an abstract composition of arrows, circles, lines and symbols similar to dollar notes, spread across blue and red colored fields.



Condition:

The painting is in very good condition. The wooden frame is painted in black and only shows small traces of use. The size of the stretcher is 46 x 61 cm and the framed overall dimensions are 60 x 74.5 cm.



L.A. II (Angel Ortiz) (b. 1967)

The Puerto Rican graffiti artist Angel Ortiz, known by his artist name L.A. II, was discovered by Keith Haring in the early 1980s, when he saw his graffiti paintings in the Lower East Side. Haring promptly asked him to cooperate, so that Ortiz decided to leave the High School. In 1982, the artists organized their first collaborative exhibition at Tony Shafrazi�s gallery in New York. In return, L.A. II encouraged and taught Haring how to use spray paint, amongst other things. Today, works by L.A .II can be found in museums around the world. Besides, they are regularly on display in international galleries. (tm)
