Lot description
A classic example of Furtura 2000's early style, "Color Forms" features a profusion of brightly colored, amorphous forms combined with sharply defined shapes and angles, creating an overall effect of pulsing movement and simmering energy. While other graffiti artists of the 1970s and 1980s focused on lettering, this work reflects the artist's distinctive abstract aesthetic.

Canvas measures 54 x 95 (137.2 x 241.3 cm.)
