The openly gay Keith Haring, who died of AIDS at the age of 31 in 1990, is best remembered for his cartoonish, vibrant paintings. But the graphic pop artist and human rights activist also broke fresh ground with the amount of LGBT symbolism he brought to his art. Happy Birthday!

By drawing upon her firsthand experience with pop culture now seen through a mature gaze, Kaoruko sets her sights upon the cultural expectation of the ‘feminine’ in a society that is deeply steeped in history and one that is forging new frontiers.

Artist Survey Q: What is your art for? A: My paintings are social commentaries about things going on in or around my life, so I suppose the art is for me and my thoughts. But I like to think I make art for others to enjoy and take whatever meaning they get from it in their own way.
