Catalogue Note

Futura is the street artist moniker of Leonard McGurr. McGurr began his art career as a graffiti artist in the 1970s, and exhibited at the Fun Gallery alongside his contemporaries, Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. The present work demonstrates Futura’s technical skill as a graffiti artist as it translates to the canvas. McGurr’s work is exhibited at Museo de Arte Moderna Bologna, the Musée de Vire in France, and the Museum of the City of New York.
