AMERICAN, BORN 1955
Leonard Hilton McGurr is formerly known as Futura 2000 and an American graffiti artist. He started to paint illegally on New York City's subway in the early 1970s, working with other artists such as ALI., Richard Hambleton and Kenny Scharf. One of the most distinctive features of Futura's work is his abstract approach to graffiti.
While the primary focus, during the 1980s, of the majority of graffiti artists was lettering, Futura pioneered abstract street art, which has since become more popular. Conversely, his aerosol strokes are regarded as different from those of his peers, as they are as thin as the fine lines usually associated with the use of an airbrush.
