Futura: Full Frame, Paperback / softback Book

Futura: Full Frame Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

"I guess I must admire the need to set things on fire."This quote, lifted from Futura's collaboration with punk band The Clash, illustrates the artist's approach to his creative career as a whole.

The so-called father of abstract graffiti started out in the 1970s, bombing the trains of his hometown New York.

He later transferred this style into paintings on canvas, and was praised by the likes of Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Along with them, Futura has been a major influencer of youth culture through his collaborations with iconic brands like NIKE, Levi's, Vans, Hennessey and Medicom Toys, as well as with his own brand, Futura Laboratories.

For the past 40 years, he has continually been pushing the boundaries of street art.
