Futura

A pioneer when graffiti met contemporary art, Futura was known as early as the seventies for his radical approach in the street, introducing abstraction to an entirely letter-based discipline. His work caught attention in the 1980's, and Futura (then Futura 2000) found himself as part of a wider art movement that included the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Julian Schnabel. Entirely self-taught in what he calls "the subway school", Futura has been compared to Kandinsky and Klee for his master of color, movement, and line; and friends Basquiat, Kenny Scharf, and Rammellzee for hi progressiveness and of-the-moment relevance.

Radical then, his methodology can now be viewed over a span of decades as something consummately pure. When compared to the many street artists who have come along since, Futura's work still stands apart for its subtlety, use of white space, and elemental quality. The artist knows all that is needed - as it was in the beginning - are clouds of primary color, arresting movement, and skillful tricks with a spray can. Insight and proficiency have kept him relevant for 40+ years with no signs of slowing down, and successors have yet to match Futura's impossibly thin aerosol lines.
