The limited edition smartphones were on display previous week in lower Manhattan, near Futura’s old art stomping grounds. At that place, he once participated with fellow art legends Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. They are two artists who also made the development from street-based graffiti to high-end galleries.
The artist started his rise in the ’70s who is known by some as Futura 2000. He then rose to a mainstream height of his career in the ’80s. The work began showing up in some of New York’s extra cutting-edge galleries.
The limited edition phones, 30 in all, each smartphone will make up a piece of a canvas-sized work and were sold for 350 dollars through Stefan’s Head. Stefan’s head is a service that sells limited edition products through text.
