Futura

A sharp-looking clip about Futura, spotted on Gommi Arcade’s blog. This is a member of the old guard; a guy who made his bones in the graffiti world way back and has more than justified his seed at every stop along the way, including live-painting on stage with The Clash in the early 80s, exhibiting with Basquiat and just overall kicking major ass and taking respective names.

Click over for GA’s write-up, with a special mention of Futura’s work with James LaVelle of UNKLE (of the Spike-Jonze’d-skateboarders-and-explosions music video) and his now-iconic Pointman figure.
