Hennessy Australia: Futura Lecture (Melbourne)

I often think that I book my trips to Melbourne at the wrong times. Next month, graffiti artist Futura will be heading back down under to launch his collaboration with Hennessy, giving a one-off lecture at RMIT and later appearing at an instore signing and live painting at Someday. If you're in Melbourne, I highly recommend you attend this event. Did i mention it's also FREE?! Damn.

Futura x Hennessy

Everyone’s favourite and one of the OG’s in the street art/graffiti world, Futura, is heading back to Melbourne for a very rare and very special lecture at RMIT.

Down under to promote his most recent collaboration with Hennessy (the limited edition bottle design you see above), Futura will be speaking about the collaboration with the world’s #1 selling cognac, as well as the development of his art and how he came to be who we all know him now.

“Futura has inspired an entire generation of artists thanks to his virtuoso style and his very personal, inventive universe, which came into being alongside those of Basquiat and Haring, with whom the artist exhibited in 1981.

“Making art is both Futura’s connection with this world and his pathway to worlds beyond. His frescoes depict a fictional realm where the expressionism of colors confronts swiftness of line; a highly sensitive, impulsive and orchestrated energy evokes the artist’s connection to the street.”
