Justin Bua Art Gallery

For the last twenty years artist Justin Bua has been making a big splash in the art market with his urban flavored paintings. His combination of graffiti-esque style, distorted realism and urban themes has made his paintings some of the most popular art among young people today. Staring in the world of commercial art, BUA designed and illustrated myriad projects, from skateboards and CD covers to advertising campaigns and he has developed work for television shows and music videos.

Bua was born in 1968 and grew up in New York City's upper-west side. An only child, he was raised by a single working mom. He was a true latch key kid, spending most of his time in the streets. He grew up next to a welfare hotel, which was a home for drug addicts, the mentally ill and many other interesting characters that would later appear in his paintings. Bua was fascinated by the raw, visceral Manhattan street life and found himself spending most of his time hanging out at places like Rock Steady Park and the Douglas Projects. These environments inspired many paintings, for example, RISING is a painting that exemplifies the poetic struggle to rise above the insurmountable stigma of the projects," says Bua.
