About the artist
Pioneering artist Futura 2000 (born Leonard Hilton McGurr) was known as early as the 1970s for his radical approach to graffiti; his methods introduced abstraction to what was previously an entirely letter-based discipline. His work on canvas established him as a leading voice within the wider art movement of the 1980s that also included Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Kenny Scharf among its ranks.
Entirely self-taught in what he calls "the subway school," Futura's work is now articulated across canvas, paper, sculpture, photography, graphic design, and large-scale mural work, widely lauded for kinetic composition, elemental quality, and fully-original gestures.
His work has been exhibited at numerous art institutions, including the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles, MoMA PS1 in New York, as well as the New Museum and the seminal Fun Gallery in New York. As an artist with a dedicated commercial practice and product brand through Futura Laboratories, Futura has collaborated with Louis Vuitton, Comme des Garçons, Chanel, Nike, Off-White, and Levi's; he has also designed iconic album packaging for musicians such as The Clash, and DJ performance visuals for Virgil Abloh.
