graffiti artist futura is a legend in his own right. from humble beginnings in the streets of new york city, he quickly gained recognition and eventually crossed over the gallery scene. since the 1970s futura is known for his abstract and energetic graffiti style in which letters are absent, and he has invented his own unique language codes between graffiti and lyrical abstraction. galerie magda danysz in paris has just started to represent the artist, and on that occasion an interesting futura exhibition is to open on sat - jun 14. entitled introspection, it presents a collection of powerful works that combine the visual impact of his explosives colours and the dexterity of the artist's drawing in geometrical forms. these days futura remains as influential as ever across the entire spectrum of urban arts and beyond. in conjunction with the show, a documentary about the artist and his work will also be screened on the premises. location: 78 rue amelot [oberkampf].
