About Justin Bua

Renowned artist, author, producer, and entrepreneur Justin BUA is internationally known for his best-selling collection of fine art prints, posters, and original works. Born in 1968 in NYC's Upper West Side and raised between Manhattan and East Flatbush, Brooklyn, BUA was fascinated by the raw, visceral street life of the city – a fascination that ultimately inspired his art. He attended the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music and Performing Arts, and his education was further supported on the NYC streets, where he wrote graffiti and performed worldwide with breakdancing crews.

BUA went on to graduate from the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. He honed his skills and developed his signature style there, incorporating graffiti, comic books, and classical elements. Bold colors, strong lines, and a distinctive urban aesthetic characterize BUA's works, and he gained recognition from art critics for his unique style and authentic depiction of urban life and the jazz and hip-hop culture. BUA has exhibited his art in galleries and museums worldwide and continues to paint and create groundbreaking pieces that solidify him as one of the most influential American painters of our time. His energetic and vocal worldwide fanbase spans the spectrum and includes former Presidents, celebrities, and art collectors from all walks of life.

In the commercial art world, BUA designed and illustrated countless projects, including skate decks, footwear, and apparel lines (for companies such as New Balance and Nike), CD/album/digital art covers, music videos, and advertising campaigns for Fortune 500 companies. BUA developed the look and feel of the EA Sports video games NBA Street and NFL Street. Going beyond commercial products and gaming, BUA collaborated with Sideshow Collectibles on a limited series of four Hip Hop Statues that promptly sold out based on his Elements of Hip Hop artworks.  

A true, modern renaissance artist, BUA is co-owner of The BUA Lab, a company responsible for producing and selling NFT and digital art, and home to the BUAverse, BUA's Web3 experience. BUA has authored and published several books, including "The Legends of Hip Hop" and "The Beat of Urban Art." Additionally, BUA taught figure drawing at the University of Southern California (USC), served on the United States Stamp Advisory Committee, produced and starred in his own TV series, Street Art Throwdown, and directed the documentary American Revolutionaries: DMC, highlighting the career of RUN-DMC's MC and front man, Darryl McDaniels. In 2012, BUA accepted an NAACP Image Award and a Telly Award for his art direction in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's documentary film, On the Shoulders of Giants.

BUA's work and life have profoundly influenced the urban art community and art across genres. His unique vision continues to inspire and captivate all audiences. His impact on the art world and popular culture is undeniable, and his unique style and vision continue to influence artists and art lovers.
