Futura X Beats By Dre

New York graffiti legend has teamed up with the world's most popular headphones (or so it feels) Beats By Dre.

Basically, Futura has splatted some paint over the white phones with the blue B's. Apparently inspired by his 'Atom' series, these guys are a work of art.

Cop them here.

And, while we're here, here's a few of our favourite Futura moments. This legendary figure in Subway Art started out as Futura 2000 in the 70s, going on to create iconic imagery for the Clash and exhibiting alongside Basquiat and Keith Haring in the 80s. He's since worked for many brands inc. BAPE, Hennessy and Nike, and become one of the most famous names from the original graf scene.

Check this artwork from the donny himself:

Infamous bubble writing created for the Clash, alongside Zephyr CIA

Love this Wallabee/ Clarks collabo. Where can we get these!
