Artist Biography

Futura is an American contemporary artist best known for his abstract and genre-defining approach to street art.

Futura (b. 1955, Manhattan), née Lenny McGurr, pioneered abstract street art in New York during the 1970s. While his contemporaries practiced traditional lettering, Futura combined text, imagery, thin aerosol lines, swaths of vibrant color, and a distinctive use of white space as he created dynamic, futuristic compositions; science fiction and computing technology have long informed his aesthetic.

In the 1980s — alongside fellow artists Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Kenny Scharf, Futura began exhibiting works on canvas in fine art gallery settings. In the ensuing decades, he’s exhibited at such institutions as the New Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and his work has sold for six figures at auction. Futura has also collaborated with fashion brands such as Supreme, Comme des Garçons, Nike, and Off-White.
