Futura Full Frame Magda Danysz
As a pioneer of abstract graffiti, Futura got its start in the 1970s by bombing trains in its hometown of New York. He then quickly transposed this style on canvas and was able to get noticed by those who would become his traveling companions, among others, Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Futura has had a defining influence on urban culture both through its art and through its collaborations with iconic brands such as NIKE, Levi's, Vans, Hennessey, Medicom Toys as well as with its own brand, Futura Laboratories. This catalog produced by Catherine Carré and Magda Danysz explore the life and work of graffiti artist Futura, aka Lenny McGurr, from the 1980s to today, with behind-the-scenes photographs of the artist at work and many of his works.
