Jeff Staple / Futura

May 14, 2010

Via hypebeast.com, Jeff Staple interviews graffiti legend Futura on the current state of street design and culture. I have spent many hours with Futura in Tokyo, Singapore and Bangkok, and appreciate his view that the street scene has “overdosed” because of the overload of digital information. He thinks the end is near for the current scene, which peaked in ’05 with big brands absorbing the small ones and quality being compromised. Reinvention and staying true, not selling out is now the key.
