As part of Abbey Road 50th anniversary celebrations, Abbey Road Studios came up with a new artistic spin on the famous wall outside the Studios. Over the duration of the coming months they’ve hand selected some of there favourite artists to visualise a song off the album by the Beatles. I was honoured to be selected as the first artist to ever paint the iconic Studio wall and selected the song “Here comes the sun”.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Simpsons in 2019, FX Networks asked Awesome Inc to help them create a graphic “thank you” spot full of characters, icons and catch phrases in honour of its epic global audience. I was asked to contribute some freehand typography and illustrations for the project which can be seen in the above motion video.

To coincide with MIF I had the opportunity to add a quick splash of colour and loving to Manchester’s Craft and Design Centre smack bang in the heart of the creative hub that is the Northern Quarters! If in Manchester the MCDC is must, some beautiful independent creatives selling handmade crafts with a lovely cafe to reenergise!
„The 5 Elements“ is not a retrospective show. On the contrary, Futura worked specifically on a large museum-style conceptual exhibition, tackling the ambitious theme of the Creation of the Universe, confronting himself to the cosmos, the planets, the infinitely small, the Big Bang and the fundamental elements, producing a corpus of works that becomes a personal path to the exploration of the universe and of course of Futura’s internal galaxy.
The works are displayed starting by the Big Bang, going through the birth of the solar system and to our perception of the 4 elements.
The works have been produced in early 2018 in Lille, France, during a residency organized byArt-Together, a newly launched ambitious platform for the development of urban contemporary arts.
A set of 4 exclusive silk screen prints are being released on the Opening Night. The set is based on the painting series „Pure“. Each 8-color screen print is hand-pulled by Dolly Demoratti (Mother Drucker/Urban Spree Studio), signed and numbered by Futura. The 50 x 50 cm prints are only sold as a limited edition of 100 sets.
A 128-page companion book titled „Futura, les 5 éléments“, will also be released in Berlin on the Opening Night and will be signed by the artist. More than an exhibition catalogue, the book intends to share the creative path of the residency and provides scientific explanation to the series of paintings.
An insight into some personal experimental Vector graphics that I’m currently working on, the series “Vector Play”…. more to come in the coming weeks! #watchthisspace #vectorplay
Wishing everyone a very happy festive Season and new year!
The gang at Work Life have ventured northwards and have opened up a brand new space in the heart of Manchester city centre on Brown Street, a stones throw away from the Northern Quarter and Exchange Square. Always great to be working with the gang again and creating a Cityscape emcompassing the old with the new…
'Tis the Season and all! Had the chance to paint the shop window for the lovely gang at Todd’s in the beautiful Belgisches Viertel in Köln. The vision was to create an alternative Festive window including a lot of sassiness, style and with a huge pinch of naughtiness! Ho ho ho…..
Another summer another location this time the beautiful Padstow where the lovely guys at Craftworks Kitchen got my to add a splash of colour to the shipping container! It’s a beautiful summer Pop Up restaurant if you’re down in Cornwall, definitly worth a visit… The dirty fries and Fish Po-Boy Burger are insane!
To celebrate Concertus Headquarters 1st year anniversary in there brand spanking new studio space in Ipswich I was invited to add a splash of colour over the four floors in the stairwell. The key mural elements were based on the brands ethos and key milestones that the company has made to date. A massive thanks to both Daniel Luenswilken and Oliver Turner for creating the short video giving you an in-sight of the Mural process.
