When the early 80’s art scene was exploding, a downtown painter named Keith Haring was one of the brightest stars.

Haring has made pieces for MTV, famed nightclub The Palladium, and his iconic backdrop for LiveAid.

Decades later, Haring’s work still lives on in various ways from fashion to film. Let’s add cannabis to that list now.

In November, Greenlane Holdings Inc (NASDAQ: GNLN), one of the largest global sellers of premium cannabis accessories, announced the launch of the K. Haring Collection: A selection of functional glass art and lifestyle products, emboldened with the powerful, iconic imagery of Keith Haring.

“As a longtime admirer and supporter of Keith Haring, his art, and his legacy, I am thrilled to introduce the K.Haring Collection, ” said Sasha Kadey, Chief Marketing Officer of Greenlane and Creative Director for the K.Haring Collection.
