Groundbreaking artist Justin BUA is internationally known for his best-selling collection of fine art posters--The DJ being one of the most popular prints of all time.

Born in 1968 in NYC’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 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 B.F.A in Illustration.
For the last ten years,  Justin Bua has been making a mark in the art world with his urban flavored paintings. His work is a combination of graffiti-esque style, distorted realism and urban themes that creates a distinct style that is all his own. Bua’s art is heavily influenced by music (from Jazz to Hip Hop).
