At the end of the 1970 years Keith Haring decorates the walls of the subway tunnels in New York with simple, two-dimensional characters. His tag is "The Radiant ChildÓ. In contrast to the graffiti scene, which consists of little more than repetitions of such tags, Keith develops a diverse language of symbols. They seem to be mystic messages. In 1990 Haring dies, aged 31, from AIDS.
Vincent van Gogh becomes only 37 years old. Only the last 10 years of his life he is engaged in painting. Restlessly and exhausting he travels through the Netherlands, Belgium, Great Britain and France. Together with his colleagues Cezanne, Toulouse-Lautrec and Gauguin he is regarded today as one of the most important artists of the expressionism movement. This comic guide, written and drawn by Willi Bloss, catches the main marks of the master's life and refers optically to the unerring style that van Gogh used for his sketches."
