Beyond the Streets


New York City

FUTURA gained notoriety in the seventies for his radical approach to graffiti, introducing abstraction to an entirely letter-based discipline. His work as FUTURA 2000 caught attention in the 1980s and while self-taught in what he calls “the subway school,” FUTURA’s contemporary work still stands apart for its subtlety, use of white space, and elemental quality. His clouds of primary color, arresting movement, and skillful tricks impossibly thin aerosol lines have yet to meet their match.
