Lenny McGurr aka Futura 2000 aka Futura (father) / 13th Witness aka Timmy McGurr (son)

Futura is one of the forefathers of the New York City graffiti scene with worldwide appeal and recognition among the street culture set and beyond. He’s worked with The Clash, painting live on stage during their performances, exhibited with Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Richard Hambleton and Kenny Scharf at Patty Astor’s Gallery, brought an abstract approach to street art, and has worked with a multitude of companies ranging from Mo’Wax to Nike. So if you just happen to be the son of Futura, it’s no surprise that you’d find yourself immersed into a world of art and graffiti at a young age. 13thWitness has made a name for himself through his photography, music videos, and working with companies such as Nike. Unfortunately, he’s also worked with John Mayer, and it’s going to take a very long time before I can wipe that away from my cerebral cortex.
