Justin BUA

Justin BUA is a critically acclaimed artist recognized worldwide for his distinctive, lyrical style. BUA’s illustrious career has spanned several creative disciplines; however, the artist is perhaps best known for his renderings of often-overlooked characters that define the urban landscape. His iconic image, “The DJ”, for instance, has become one of the most celebrated and reproduced prints of all time. BUA continues to be a leading innovator in both the fine art and commercial worlds and exhibits throughout the United States and internationally. As an artist “for the people, by the people, of the people,” BUA’s fan base is fittingly diverse and ranges from former presidents, actors, musicians, professional athletes, dancers, to street kids and art connoisseurs.
