Futura (formerly Futura 2000), né Lenny McGurr, launched his decades-long career in graffiti art alongside New York’s original street art vanguard in the 1970s. At that time, while most of Futura’s contemporaries were practicing traditional lettering, he pioneered abstract street art. Futura’s technique involves combining text, imagery, thin aerosol lines, swathes of vibrant color, and a distinctive use of white space to create dynamic works. Since the 1980s—when the artist began showing at Fun Gallery with Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kenny Scharf, and Richard Hambleton—Futura’s works on canvas have been embraced by the fine art world. In the years since, Futura has collaborated with brands and streetwear designers to bring his iconic work to the fashion industry.
