ENG

Leonard Hilton McGurr, known as Futura, is an American graffiti artist. In 1985, he was on the first meeting of the graffiti and urban art movement in Bondy (France). More recently, he is a successful graphic designer and gallery artist. 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.

Leonard Hilton McGurr, conhecido como Futura, é um grafiteiro americano. Em 1985, participou do primeiro encontro do movimento do graffiti e da arte urbana em Bondy (França). Mais recentemente, tornou- se um designer gráfico e artista de galeria de sucesso. Uma das características mais marcantes do trabalho de Futura é sua abordagem abstrata do graffiti. Enquanto o foco principal, durante a década de 1980, da maioria dos grafiteiros era a escrita, Futura foi pioneira na arte de rua abstrata, que desde então se tornou mais popular. Por outro lado, seus traços de aerossol são considerados diferentes dos de seus colegas, pois são tão finos quanto as linhas normalmente associadas ao uso de um aerógrafo.
