Across fine art, graffiti, and fashion circles, Futura 2000's name is synonymous with legendary and influential. We just obtained a few preview images of Futura's new exhibition, Futura 2012—Expansions, opening at Paris' Galerie Jerome de Noirmont on January 13, 2012.

You shouldn't use the term King lightly, but with this line-up of Futura 2000, Lee Quinones, and Fab 5 Freddy, 3 Kings is the perfect moniker. Curated by Patti Astor of the Fun Gallery and coming to Subliminal Projects in Los Angeles, this exhibition brings three ambassadors of NYC graffiti to Southern California.

Obviously, the legendary names and artists of New York City were a big part of the story at MOCA's "Art In the Streets," with Futura, Martha Cooper, Blade, Henry Chalfant, Fab 5 Freddy, Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf, Crash, and Freedom having major spaces in the Geffen building, as well as younger talents that later emerged like Dash Snow.

Another great part of the Art In the Streets exhibition is LEE Q's wall when you walk in, representing, or at least it seemed apparent to us, the NYC contingent at the show. And next to LEE's two pieces was a recreation of Patti Astor's seminal FUN Gallery that used to be the downtown spot in NYC for graffiti artists to exhibit in the 1980s. More after the jump . . .

Everything is getting tightened up at MOCA's Art In the Streets at the moment, and just one walk around the building this morning we found pieces by Os Gemeos, AMAZE, and BLADE, and LEE and FUTURA were putting touhces on the massive mural on the side of the Geffen. Inside is amazing, but more on that later. Pictures after the jump . . .

We have been following the progress of LEE's mural at MOCA's Art In the Streets all weekend, and yesterday evening finally took a few shots of the beautiful progress that he has been in making. LEE, our April 2011 subscriber cover artist and featured in the magazine, has been painting the large facade outside of the Geffen with PUSH and RISK, at least when we took these pictures.
