Haring “aimed to speak of and for his generation, to create symbols for it,” stated Elizabeth Sussman, and what better way than to pay tribute to Disney and Haring's hero and mentor, Andy Warhol at the same time. Drawing on Warhol and Disney’s legacy, Haring creates a world for both adults and children, in which art becomes a visual vocabulary. Believing that cartoon figures could be a component of fine art, and regarding Andy Warhol and Walt Disney as heroes, Haring’s exuberant and enchanting Andy Mouse bonds together the work of these three significant pop culture icons.
Created in 1986, this color silkscreen on cardboard is hand-signed by Keith Haring (Pennsylvania, 1958- New York, 1990) and Andy Warhol (Pennsylvania, 1928 - New York, 1987) in pencil on the verso. Numbered from the edition of 30 and dated on the verso, this work was printed by Rupert Smith, New York.
