Pop International Galleries is excited to introduce the art of Justin BUA!
Through the tip of his brush, BUA has told the stories of a world of color, dance and music. Through his iconic muses, "The Bass Player", "Guitarrista", "Piano Man", and "The DJ", he has described a place that was the true genesis of some of the biggest artistic styles in recent times.
Groundbreaking artist Justin BUA is internationally known for his best-selling collection of images influenced by the result of the Harlem Renaissance and Urban Culture in general. Born in 1968 in New York City’s untamed Upper West Side and raised between Manhattan and East Flatbush, Brooklyn, BUA was fascinated by the raw, visceral street life of the city he saw every day.
He attended the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music and Performing Arts and complemented his education on the streets by writing graffiti and performing worldwide with breakdancing crews. BUA went on to the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California where he earned a BFA in Illustration.
Currently, he teaches figure drawing at the University of Southern California, while continuing to be a leading innovator in both the fine and commercial art worlds. BUA’s energetic and vocal worldwide fan base ranges from former presidents, actors, musicians, professional athletes, and dancers, to street kids and art connoisseurs.
