New Pop: Tony Futura Creates Pop Culture Images With A Twist

Tony Futura is a digital artist based in Berlin who creates surreal art to poke fun at the materialism and pop-culture focus of modern Western life. His light-hearted and funny digital art is often charged with political or sexual energy.

How do you describe your work?
It’s quite simple, funny and open to interpretations.

What does your art focus on?
It deals with a lot of stuff. Thing is, I get bored super fast, that’s why I am searching for new ideas all day. I don’t want to get bored with the same images that the advertising industry offers us every day. Same for the music business, art and media. I hate that people think we’re just some stupid idiots that can get fed with the same shit all over again. I try to give a new input to people and to open their minds for creativity and a life that is more than just daily routine.

What triggers your imagination?
That could be anything: Objects, persons, TV shows, everything on the internet or a drunk talk with a friend. I also discover a lot of inspiring images through pop-culture. Pop means something famous, something many people know or can relate to and that gives me the opportunity to twist expectations and turn them into a different direction. The rest just happens randomly and gets into my mind like a brain wave.
