Long overdue and highly anticipated, the great FUTURA is the latest to contribute to the iconic Houston & Bowery Mural wall in Manhattan. Following greats like Keith Haring, Os Gemeos, Crash, Swoon, and many others, one of the most influential names in all of NYC and world graffiti, FUTURA, finally got to apply his trademark style at the intersection of Bowery and Houston. As Martha Cooper noted on her Instagram that FUTURA's new "Concrete Jungle" mural was created in "a style reminiscent of his radical 1980 "Break" piece."

It's so good to be back. This is our fifth (maybe sixth, who's counting?) year at Nuart, and not only is this the festival's 15th year, but they have an outstanding line-up creating art around Stavanger, Norway with the topic of play and intervention at its heart. We just got into town, and the artists are all hard at work, so before the talks, the drinks, and the unveiling of all the tunnel installations, here is a look at some of the works in progress.

A few weeks ago, we showed you a preview of FUTURA's new exhbition, "Introspective" at Magda Danysz Gallery in Paris. Our friend Butterfly was over in Paris on opening night and caught a few great shots of the crowd and some of the new abstract and character works from the famed NYC artist.

FUTURA is set to open a new body of abstract works at Magda Danyz Gallery in Paris in an exhibition entitled "Introspective." We follow FUTURA's awesome Instagram account, and he has always had a great eye and interesting approach to painting. From his signature character that we had on our cover in 2005, to Art In Streets, an international influencer in graffiti, we love these new works.

The end of year brings us to our closing issue of 2012, and who better than London-based Conor Harrington to grace the cover for a second time (scoring at home, October 2008 was his first cover). We lean heavily on painters and fine artists this issue with pieces on Nicola Verlato, Futura, Julie Heffernan, Marco Mazzoni, Grady Gordon, and Gregory Euclide, plus conversations with Jen Stark, Bob Dob, and a photo essay from the heart of Johannesburg.
