Futura promotion at Citi Field.




I guess this is cool. I have no idea who Futura is, and this is the first time that I have heard of this promotion. Another promotion jammed into Mr Met on the Moon bobblehead day also. Mets have no idea how to do promotions.

About Futura

A pioneer when graffiti met the formal gallery ecosystem in the 1980s, artist Futura 2000 (born Leonard Hilton McGurr) was known as early as the late 1970s for his radical approach in the street, introducing abstraction to an entirely letter-based discipline. His work caught attention in the 1980's, and he found himself as part of a wider art movement that included the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Dondi White. Entirely self-taught in what he calls "the subway school", Futura 2000 has been compared to Kandinsky for his mastery of color, concentric forms, and kinetic composition-and friends Basquiat, Kenny Scharf, and Rammellzee for his progressiveness and of-the-moment dynamism.
Radical then, his methodology can now be viewed over a span of decades as something consummately pure. When compared to the many street artists who have come along since its seminal moment in 1980s New York, Futura's work still stands apart for its subtlety, use of white space, and elemental quality. Insight and proficiency have kept him relevant for 40+ years with no signs of slowing down. He has also had quite the career as a commercial artist; in 2019 alone, Futura has collaborated with Louis Vuitton, Supreme, Nike, and Off-White.
