A FILM BY GUTO BARRA AND GISELA MATTA.
During a brief but intense career that spanned the 1980s, Keith Haring spent most of his time traveling and working in dozens of cities around the world. It was in a remote fishing village on the coast of Brazil that he found a much-needed change of pace for his jet-setting life. In several month-long trips to Serra Grande, he relaxed with a group of artist friends creating drawings and paintings that were both personal and informal. In Brazil he would spend his days creating murals at Kenny Scharf’s house, painting fisherman shacks along the beach and making drawings inspired by the local landscape and people. “RESTLESS – KEITH HARING IN BRAZIL” revisits his experience and uncovers for the first time some of the works created at the time.
