Futura Reveals Work-In-Progress Paintings for Upcoming "Abstract Compass" Exhibit

Taking place in Hong Kong’s Danysz Gallery.

After wrapping up “The Five Elements” in Berlin’s Urban Spree, Futura ventures back to Hong Kong for a dynamic new show entitled “Abstract Compass.” Co-hosted by Unveil Ltd alongside Danysz, the forthcoming presentation will feature a selection of new paintings depicting the graffiti legend’s signature, abstract symbology: spray-painted atoms, stardust, unwavering lines, and lightning bolts.

“Futura is fascinated by Hong-Kong, its skyscrapers reminding him New-York – his home town – mixed with the luxurious nature, forest, mountains, and sea. The vibrant city is a large source of inspiration for the talented artist and his painting are depicting this multifaceted place,” said Danysz Gallery in a statement.

View work-in-progress paintings in the slideshow above and look out for “Abstract Compass” to open on March 27. The show’s launch coincides with Art Basel Hong Kong 2019. More information, along with visiting registration can be found over the “Abstract Compass” info site.
