Puzzle producers JIGGY have released the last month issuing Originals, a new series of 500 piece jigsaws that feature hand drawn and painted work from artists such as Futura. Futura launched his decades-long career in graffiti art alongside New York’s original street art vanguard in the 1970s. He transitioned from subway graffiti to exhibiting at Fun Gallery in the 1980s alongside major artists such as Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kenny Scharf, and Richard Hambleton and ever since, his work has been embraced by the fine art world. Today, Futura’s work can be found in the collections of the Museo de Arte Moderna di Bologna, the Musée de Vire in France, and the Museum of the City of New York. In recent years, Futura has collaborated with brands and streetwear designers to bring his iconic work to the fashion industry, including with Comme des Garçons, Converse, Off-White and BMW. The puzzle is available at their online and it will directly benefit the Artist Relief Fund and NYC Covid-19 Emergency Relief.
