It is the only museum in the world dedicated to the collection of Keith Haring’s artworks. Zen and Eastern philosophers are sources of inspiration for him and he combines modern and traditional aspects into his works.
“The concept of what I produce is based on ‘Pop’ so I think it can be received in the same way in both Tokyo and New York. I think the Japanese are looking to the Western World a bit much right now–the desire to be more American or to be more Western. I believe that if you turn the traditional Japanese culture into Pop, something amazing can be born, rather than copying American things.” –Keith Haring 1988
