Keith Haring (United States, 1958-1990)
'Lucky Strike II', 1987
In 1987, the cigarette company Lucky Strike commissioned Keith Haring to design a series of advertisements for the brand. Haring created nine drawings for Lucky Strike, from which the company selected five to be printed as limited edition silkscreen prints. To humor his friends, Haring also created a tenth sketch for Lucky Strike that depicted a smoking skeleton. The executives at Lucky Strike weren’t too happy about that rendition, Haring noted in his journal. Three of the most iconic designs, featuring the artist’s signature dancing figures, were released as posters printed by Albin Uldry Berne, Austria with Haring's plate signature in lower right and publisher's stamp to lower left.
