Keith Haring's pop art and graffiti-like work continue to remain prevalent in today's society, be they found on t-shirts, condom wrappers, and yes, even skateboards. The Skateroom is back with another round of boards given the Haring treatment, following the success of their first release last year.

Haring, a force in the downtown New York art scene, created some of the most iconic images of the 20th century.  The late artist began his career by producing drawings in the subways of New York City, as this video clip shows. But Haring did more than simply create. Through his instantly recognizable art, he impacted the world beyond the confines of museums and galleries, channeling his passion into AIDS-related activism that would define his legacy.

If the range proves anything, it's that long after his passing, Keith Haring remains one of America's most acclaimed artists.

The collection will feature eight new editions and will be available for purchase at 10 Corso Como New York starting Friday, July 26.
