He quickly became known for his radical approach on the street, introducing abstraction to an entirely letter-based discipline, and became part of a wider art movement that included the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Dondi White. The BMW M2 by FUTURA 2000 will make its world premiere at



Frieze Los Angeles on Thursday, February 13 at 2:30 PM at Paramount Pictures Studios’ Backlot, and inspire a special edition production version to go on sale later this year.
