This past January, No More Rulers unveiled its Futura-isms book spotlighting an intimate collection of quotes by the world-renowned graffiti and contemporary artist, Futura. The book is part of NMR’s ongoing -ISMS series with Princeton University Press that sheds a light on the thoughts behind some of the greatest art makers such as Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Ai Weiwei. The new book  is comprised of 176 pages that offer rare insights into Futura’s decades-long career starting from his graffiti art and New York City’s “subway school” back in the 1980s.

To commemorate the book release, NMR teamed up with Futura to launch a special edition print entitled MIDNIGHT FORAYS. Measuring 18 by 24 inches, the artwork features the artist’s favorite quote from the book:

It makes perfect sense that the subway system would literally become the “vehicle” It just happened, it invited it. Suddenly graffiti wasn’t limited to tenement halls, school yard walls, and bathroom stalls. Graffiti had found the speed at which it needed to be seen. To keep in step with the fast pace of communication and information sharing. What had started out as playing in subway tunnels had progressed into midnight forays deep in the interiors of the system.

The print will arrive in a signed and numbered edition of 100 with each one priced at $1000 USD. Further details surrounding the print release will be unveiled during Pérez Art Museum Miami’s latest installment of its Scholl Lecture Series this February 23 at 6 p.m. EST. The live digital discussion will be helmed by the museum’s director Franklin Sirmans who will be speaking with Futura and iconic graffiti artist Lee Quinones surrounding their processes and longstanding friendship. Register for the discussion here. The first 20 people who register will also be given copies of the new Futura-isms book.
