FUTURA 2000, born Leonard Hilton McGurr, quickly became known for his radical approach on the street back in the 1980s by introducing abstraction to an entirely letter based discipline. He then found himself part of a wider art movement that included the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Dondi White. In addition to his decades-long career as a contemporary artist, he has achieved great success as a commercial artist, collaborating with several well-known brands.
