Futura 2000 x Pop Life, a figurine for the 2019 SDCC

Pop Life has just introduced a figurine that will meet a crazy success: collaboration with graffiti-artist Futura 2000. Present on the urban art scene since the 70s Leonard McGurur, its real name, chained the performances confronting its diversity of influences in the eyes of the passers-by and the regulars of the galleries. Street phenomenon brilliantly crosses generations, it still surprises and always by its collaborations. Nike, Medicom Toy or more recently off-white ABLOH for whom he created a milky blue-blue sculpture, Futura 2000 multiplies the expression lands, especially with the re-launch of Futura Laboratories who makes it go back to fashion.


But it's the figurines that interest us here. More abstract and black and white, we discover Johnny, a figurine containing one of the Signature Figura 2000 characters made in 3D thanks to Pop Life. Prototype discovery at complex 2018, Johnny will not fail to make people crazy at San Diego Comic-con In a few days with this final version.


If it seems already to trace its path, Futura 2000 creates the surprise otherwise by presenting on Instagram a figurine for the least enigmatic. With his classic costume reinterpreted and his disturbing look, this character already appeared in the paintings and drawings of Futura 2000 to please. And yet a multitude of questions are jostling as to the definitive character of this figure: when will it be launched? In which colors? For what occasion ? So many questions, for the moment unanswered, who will keep us in breath a while.
