Futura has an uncanny knack for staying on the cusp. He’s spent his forty-year career constantly progressing, from being represented on NYC’s Broadway subway line to seeing his work fetch five-figure sums at major contemporary art auctions. Along the way he’s played a pivotal role in the Downtown cool of the 1980s, the streetwear boom of the 1990s, and sowed the seeds of the street art explosion of the 2000s. Now, the 57-year-old artist is releasing his biggest project to date—a 360,000 bottle affair with the house of Hennessy.
