Slide 4: Child of Hope - Keith Haring's Radiant Baby
Graffiti artist Keith Haring created the “Radiant Baby” in 1980, and soon the image became an icon of his work and of his worldview. Indeed, it soon became his calling card. When people approached him working on outdoor mural, Harding would give them a button of the radiant baby to wear. Soon the baby was making cameos in all of his Haring’s illustrations, be they for nuclear posters, Christmas cards, or even baby announcements. Although Haring consistently refused to define this icon, he mentioned in a 1985 interview, “Babies represent the possibility of the future, the understanding of perfection, how perfect we could be. There is nothing negative about a baby. Ever.”
