Keith Haring created the poster for the 1983 Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. He appeared during the course of the Festival to do some work. Here he is painting a billboard across the street from the actual concert site. In this full-frame image the scale of this work makes it seem as if he's one of the characters on his own canvas. I was going through some old images the other day and this has never before been published.
