Remembering Futurism

Filippo Tommaso Marinetti was a man of inherited wealth, artistic vision, controversial political views, and a well-curled mustache. His “Futurist Manifesto” is an outlandish and entertaining document that would be difficult to parody. I’ve paraphrased parts of the manifesto in this comic while trying to stay true to the spirit of the original. 

For future posts in “Who Needs Art,” I plan to illustrate more movements, concepts,and people in the history of art and design.
