POP you UP is the event that was a tribute to Keith Haring held in Blue Marlin.
I am so extremely happy and grateful to my friend Elliot for getting me involved in it. First of all, I absolutely love Keith Haring. work and spirit. I think we would definitely be great friends if he was alive now.
I´ve read some of his personal notes and biography I fell immediately in love with his attitude towards life, love and the universe. He was focused on pointing out real matters, like helping children, sexually spread diseases, money and the care for the planet earth. Not to mention his art is simply bananas.
A local talent from Ibiza, artist Benjamin Joseph, has prepared canvases and materials with the face of Keith as a form of interactive exhibition where anybody could paint and doodle whatever they feel like. My eyes were smiling when I saw people doodling and getting dirty from spray. There was even one kid who participated. It´s so nice to have children around, they bring this good and innocent energy wherever they hang. I wish there were more parties in Ibiza like that, where people would come up with kids and just like in Japan, party with respect so kids get good example and at the same time have fun.
Thank you everybody who came and doodled with us ❤
