WORLD CUP | TEAM USA KICKS OFF WITH OFFICIAL ARTWORK BY FUTURA
World Cup may already be well under way in Brasil, but it officially kicks off today for Americans when Team USA battles Ghana in their first heated match of the competition. Amazingly, to commemorate this monumental event, the US team has made legendary aerosol/street artist & Supertouch buddy Futura (aka: Lenny McGurr) the organization’s official art director (with Lupe Fiasco onboard as music director) and will be releasing his first special edition art print to mark the event.
Building on the “One Nation. One Team.” theme, Futura will be creating additional tour merch throughout the World Cup tournament while Lupe will be creating Spotify playlists, in collaboration with his DJ group the SNDCLSH, and playing live events.
In celebration of today’s kickoff match, Chicago’s RSVP Gallery will be hosting a special Fan Fest event tonite featuring live painting by Futura (with all works being auctioned off to benefit Fiasco’s “Mission” campaign), and music by Lupe.
Don’t sleep, Chicago…
