Over at Berlin’s Muenzstr. 19, in association with Artorial, “Odyssey Two” aims to bring together 20 years of Futura’s urban art. In addition to a visual anthology of older pieces, there will also be new pieces on display, alongside key works such as the original 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.

Futura’s latest pieces show an artist comfortable in the world he has created; the accomplished works use monochrome and occasional, frenetic bursts of outline to perfectly convey mood, atmosphere and situation without the need for graphic symbols. Collectors can buy an accessible selection of key pieces in the creation of Futura’s world: there will be a trademark Pointman series and a limited print run. A small number of recent abstract canvases, presented in the environment of their creation, will also be available.

The show runs from 24th September through the 27th.
