I have great info for all writers, graffiti artists and spray paint lovers out there! Today, the new exhibition “Odyssey Two” by famous graffiti legend Futura 2000 will open:
“Odyssey Two is the upcoming exhibition by Futura and produced in conjunction with new art organization Artorial. It runs throughout Art Forum Berlin and brings together 20 years of the urban art pioneer’s work. Significant new pieces will be on display, alongside key works such as the original iconic Pointman canvas and a collection of early Pointman sketches.
The show focuses on the dual themes of memory and the past, and the influence these have on an individual’s imagined world. Futura’s obsessions with space and hyperindustrial landscapes grew from his adolescence: a time when man first landed on the moon, and when the New York skyline soared with a mass of fresh skyscrapers. But the world in his pieces is entirely unique – a place that has developed in his mind over time, where remnants of earlier memories co-exist with imagined, abstract landscapes.”
The “Odyssey Two” graffiti show is part of the Art Forum Berlin, takes place at the former 95 Gallery, Muenzstrasse 19, 10178 Berlin and runs until September 27th.
