BUSTART creates complex stencilling works which look like collages – he’s combining various elements and techniques and uniting them into energetic and vivid murals that are at times provocative, but more often simply visually stunning. BUSTART’s goal is to affect people in any way he can, be it on the surface level or deeper when possible.

BUSTART was born in 1983 and grew up in the times of street art expansion. Before he became known for the murals in his hometown Basel, he used to experiment lots with different street art styles and techiques and eventually realized there’s is no point in choosing just one style.

Actually, there is no technique BUSTART doesn’t use in his murals -he paints with a wide range of brushes, markers, aerosols and stencils. BUSTART’s work can contain up to eight layers and all of them are done freehandedly.

The artist says that his greatest souce of motivation lies in plain gray concrete walls that simply beg to be painted and embellished. In a way, BUSTART considers himself a magician whose primary task is to instill life into facades that seem long dead and forever forgotten.

BUSTART is well-prepared before he starts to paint – he usually spends some time in his studio, processing his visual impressions from the streets and planning on what to do next.
