ARTIST: Justin Bua - Legends of Hip Hop

Justin Bua was born in New York. Raised between Manhattan and Brooklyn Bua became fascinated with the raw street life. He's had formal training at the Art Center College of Design in California earning a BFA in Illustration, but perhaps more importantly practical independent education through graffiti. Rounding him out as a very unique individual talent. Traveling the world with break dancing crews, Justin covered the streets with his rhythmic style. With his unique vision, melding urban rhythms, graffiti, and classical art training Justins evovled and gained much respect in both the world of fine, and commercial art. His latest project, a book of paintings titled "The Legends of Hip Hop" is coming out on November 8th. He's already had the show of the originals at Brooklyn's House of Art gallery this year. Here are some of the pieces from the book...
