New York-based contemporary artist Futura is set to debut his largest public installation to date, taking place in Hong Kong. Titled FUTURALAND, the installation is a celebration of the artist's love of outer space and marks his first experiential exploration of the intergalactic realm on such a large scale.
For this exhibition, the graffiti pioneer and his brand Futura Laboratories teamed up with creative studio AllRightsReserved to curate the space-themed showcase. Held at Hong Kong’s BELOWGROUND, FUTURALAND features a colossal six-meter-tall rocket at its center surrounded by seven of the artist's FL-006 sculptural forms.
“I want to introduce people to who I am, and my body of work," Futura explained in a statement. "I would like to get people to obviously become familiar with my character universe, and the idea behind my characters, and the perception in a playful way. They are coming from somewhere and they arrived here. Of course, this project with this spaceship, the alien figures help tell that kind of playful story, kind of my own fantasy as far as the characters.”
FUTURALAND kicks off on June 3 and runs till June 16 in BELOWGROUND's Landmark Atrium in Hong Kong. Admission is free to the public.
