Futura Futura

The living legend of the graffiti movement, illustrator, photographer, sculptor, fashion and graphic designer from New York City, Futura is one of the major players on the international urban art scene. Pioneer of abstract street art, Futura helped define the graffiti movement of the early 1970s by moving it away from lettering and towards a more painterly, abstract style. In the early 1980s he showed at the Fun Gallery, along with Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Richard Hambleton and Kenny Scharf. Today Futura’s work can be found in the collections of the Museo d’Arte Moderna, Bologna, the Musée de Vire in France, and the Museum of the City, New York. Museum exhibitions include New York / New Wave at PS1 (1981), Coming from the Subway at Groninger Museum (1992) and Art in the Streets at Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2011).
