line

"Which [the grafitti on the trains] for me were very similar to the whole interest that I had had in calligraphy, not only eastern calligraphy because of the Japanese and Chinese connection, the whole eastern philosophy connection, but really very similar to the kinds of lines and the kind of stream of consciousness mind-to-hand flow which I saw in Dubuffet, Mark Tobey, and Alechinsky. The forms seemed very similar in a way to the kinds of drawings I was doing."
--Haring, from interviews by John Gruen
