Lenny McGurr aka Futura 2000 is one of the few remaining living legends of the early New York graffiti scene, having worked and exhibited with the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Richard Hambleton. As a new wave of urban and street artists emerged, Futura remained at the forefront, working selectively with a roster of respected brands and labels such as Mo Wax, Nike, Supreme, Colette, Maharishi and A Bathing Ape. His work is also held in numerous public collections, and has been exhibited in galleries and institutions including the ICA London, Venice Biennale and MoMA PS1. Arguably the artists' signature, the Po.
Intman character seen here is a unique, original artwork executed in 2009. Unusually, this piece is not a straightforward painting but in fact a collage, featuring spraypaint, acrylic and marker pen on paper and card.As you can see from the second photo this series of works was also used for a range of limited edition t-shirts, which further increases its collectibility. As with Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat et al, expect the wider contemporary art market to eventually catch up with the significance of Futuras work, at which point you can expect to see prices rise dramatically.
