Keith Haring Mural
A week ago, Angel Ortiz, an artist known as LA II added his own touches to the Keith Haring tribute mural, covered in April by AO here, that has stood at Bowery and Houston streets since April. With the help of artist and gallerist, Clayton Patterson, Mr. Ortiz filled in blank spaces on the public mural, which he deemed fair game. It is yet another chapter in a 20 year long legal dispute with The Haring Foundation. He claims the Foundation has failed to credit collaborative work he did as an underage teenager with Haring in the early to mid eighties.
