John Sex (John McLaughlin), and Keith Haring became Best Buddies while attending the School of Visual Arts NYC (SVA) in the late 70’s. John often used the SVA print studio to create punk-style posters for downtown bands, and later for himself. He exhibited some of his word-based art at the "Beyond Words" show at the Mudd Club – alongside artists such as Haring, Kenny Scharf, and Futura 2000 and performers Iggy Pop, Fab Five Freddy and Alan Vega – and at the "New York / New Wave" exhibition at P.S. 1, both in 1981.
