New York-based artist Futura has seen it all, starting off on the city subways back in the ’70s with the likes of ALI and QUICK, and then meeting with Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat a decade later, he has truly seen street art evolve and contributed to have it showcased in museums. Known for being the first artist who painted an abstract “whole-car,” Futura’s pieces seem to be an open door to escape, encouraging artists to follow through with their own interpretations. His unique style has made him a legend in the international street art scene, and now Futura has brought a set of exclusive pieces painted for this solo exhibition. Prior to the official opening, the gallery will be transformed into a huge workshop for a “work in progress” period, where the public can witness the artist at work for a short time. The “Kinetic Action” exhibition will run November 1 through to December 6 at the Magda Danysz gallery in Shanghai and is a must see for those with an appreciation for street art.
