Legendary street artist Futura celebrated Art Basel Hong Kong last week with his special Abstract Compass exhibition. Encompassing a number of his newest painted works in his unique abstract graffiti style, the artist also collaborated on a set of “NULL” concrete sculptures with Samuel Ross/Jobe Burns’ Concrete Objects line.

As shown in the gallery, Futura’s latest work emphasizes his fascination with the city of Hong-Kong, as the tall skyscrapers evoke the essence of his hometown NYC, as well as its juxtaposition against nature, mountains and the sea. Overall, the vibrance of Hong Kong instilled a source of inspiration for the talented artist and his unique paintings depict his view of the multifaceted place in art form.
