Futura 2000 (American, Born 1955) + Bonhams
It’s only right that Futura has been busy with a host of current gigs and collabs, but some of his earliest work is still making its rounds, continuing to garner worldwide attention and acclaim. Recently, the Bonhams auction house held its 4th ‘Urban Art’ auction showcasing work from artists such as Banksy, JR and Futura, amongst many others. Futura’s piece for sale was created on The Clash’s ‘Combat Rock’ tour in 1983, a gig which brought to mainstream attention his talents that the underground had recognized for years. The piece is expected to garner 20,000 GBP (?) upon sale.
And in case you missed it, 12oz and Futura have a little something up their sleeves –pun intended– so keep your eyes peeled for more.
