Join us for a special after-hours walk-through of CONSTELLATION, the Southeast Asian debut exhibition of NYC street artist Futura curated by Singapore's leading pop artist, Jahan Loh, and presented by The Culture Story. Guests will have the unique opportunity to explore the exhibition after the gallery's normal hours when the exhibit is closed to the public. A wine reception will follow.


Hailing from the birth of the graffiti art movement, in the early 1970’s Futura began ‘bombing’ trains in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York. Alongside his contemporaries, including iconic names such as Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, he later took his distinctive abstract graffiti style from the streets and onto the canvas, showing in galleries around the world. Over the past forty years, Futura continuously pushed the boundaries of street art and painting, and has earned recognition internationally for his authentic style which has evolved beyond traditional forms of graffiti.


The exhibition will showcase 30 specially commissioned pieces created during a two week-long residency at The Culture Story. CONSTELLATION delves into Futura’s inner universe and celebrates his pioneering spirit for inventing new spraying techniques, including his most iconic and signature move, the inverted spray. Utilising a range of materials coupled with finely tuned techniques, this unique series of works demonstrates that Futura’s visual style transcends cultural and physical boundaries - where expression and style, restraint and spontaneity, splatters and control, provide poetic contradiction. The bold, vibrant compositions are marked by a repertoire of forms and iconic motifs he has come to be known for – characters, atoms and cranes.
