When I’m asked to describe Justin BUA’s art, I think of Ralph Steadman colliding with Ernie Barnes. He’s very now and very rooted in the modern urban tradition. Check him out!
BUA’s power as an artist stems from his ability to make us relate to what is universal–regardless of our ethnicity or cultural upbringing. His work is about ONENESS, guiding us to transcend boundaries and celebrate what moves everyone- passion, emotion, and love. BUA’s world is a community everyone belongs to. Tony and I have been huge fans of BUA's for years, and now we are proud collectors. We saw this book in the making and are thrilled it’s finally out.

BUA's work moves me on a level that no other art has before. His hard work and dedication have taught me a lot about the discipline it takes to be a great artist. He inspires me to explore the unchallenged obstacles in scratching. BUA's art is a lesson to all: whatever art you choose to practice, learn both the technical and creative sides—don't try to skip the basics or like BUA says, 'Don't avoid drawing the hands and feet!'
