Justin Bua Art Work

Artist Justin Bua grew up in New York City's untamed, upper-west side. At age 13, BUA was accepted on an art scholarship to the High School of Music and Performing Arts where he studied visual art. In addition to his studies in school, he continued his "education" on the streets writing graffiti and break dancing. Over the years he has been making a mark in the art world 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. Bua has an energetic and vocal fan base that ranges from high school skateboarders and college students across the globe to Hollywood actors like Robert De Niro and Christina Ricci.
