FUTURA Interview (not sure the year it was filmed)

I’ve had to be real patient. It all didnt happen right away. Even in the midst of the whole gallery art world I thought this was the greatest thing in the world, but there was more.

Known for pioneering a more abstract style of graffiti writing, Futura played a major role in the NYCs graffiti scene of the 70s. As the popularity of graffiti art flared in the 70’s and 80’s, Futura’s work was shown alongside artists such as Basquiat and Keith Haring. As his style developed, he began designing, and has collaborated with numerous artists and companies, including The Clash, Supreme, and A Bathing Ape. Get an inside look at his workspace and his love for b movies, video games and, apparently, all things Sony in the interview from “The Run Up,” courtesy of Walrus TV.

Hiroshi Fujiwara & DJ BoogiePop

DJ BoogiePop put me on to this man a few years ago. He admired what this man stood for in terms of living his life and expressing his creative talents to the world. And since then, I’ve come to admire the great feats he has accomplished and Hiroshi became one of the final inspirations for me to push the “Fareign Renaissance” into fruition.

I updated this to show that though I do have a true appreciation and new found admiration for Hiroshi Fujiwara and his accomplishments-I would be the first to say that without the influences of DJ BoogiePop who helped introduce me to many things-particulary this great man-that I wouldn’t be the same man in this position that I am now. Hiroshi had a profound indirect effect on him and BoogiePop had a profound direct effect on me. Polymaths are the wave of the future, and we (DJ BoogiePop and StarRJ) are those guys to help usher it in.
