Artist: Futura 2000 is a contemporary American artist who transitioned from making subway graffiti in New York’s early 1970s to exhibiting at Fun Gallery in the 1980s alongside major artists such as Keith Haring, Rammellzee, Kenny Scharf, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. His original, abstract style on NYC’s trains laid the aesthetic foundation for the works on canvas and sculptures that were to follow. Today examples of Futura’s seminal work can be found in the collections of the Museo de Arte Moderna di Bologna, the Musée de Vire in France, and the Museum of the City of New York, among other art institutions. He has exhibited his work in galleries and museums worldwide, most recently at the show currently running until December 23, entitled Futura 2020 at the Eric Firestone Gallery in New York City.
