In 1984, Eric Orr joined forces with Keith Haring to create a series of chalk drawings in the NYC subway system that featured Orr’s “robot head” character alongside Haring’s “radiant baby.” As their collaboration evolved, the two artists shifted their focus from the subway to the studio and embarked on the production of a suite of drawings. Included in the group was “Repeat” which had made its first appearance in the 23rd Street IRT uptown station. Little did Orr and Haring know that the reimagined drawing would be auctioned at Christie’s six years later.
