Justin BUA paints the urban culture of NY, NY in vibrant color and beautiful distorted realism. The paintings are rich with detail and each one tells a unique story.
Having grown up a latch-key child in this poor community, BUA’s first canvases were the city walls around him. But with studied appreciation for the classical masters, paper and canvas soon replaced brick and cement. BUA’s masterful paintings, infused with both the rhythms of the street and classical training, tell the tales of urban life through his cast of city muses.
On March 25th, 2010 BUA will return home to exhibit at POP International Galleries. The opening is at 8:30 and he will be showing his latest work. See BUA’s website for more.
