LOS ANGELES, Ca. – BUA, the legendary urban artist, proudly introduces his newest collection of original art, entitled BUA “POPS”, as well as showcasing some of his classic works on Saturday, September 11, 2010, at Hold Up Art, located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo district. For BUA, POPS represents more than just popular cultural representations and iconography or the style of art made famous by the likes of Warhol and Haring. Known as the artist “for the people, of the people, by the people”, POPS continues BUA’s message as an homage to the artist’s fan base as well as creating pervasive hip hop imagery recognizable across cultures.
BUA is internationally known for his best-selling collection of fine art works and prints–“The DJ” being one of the most popular selling posters of all time. Born 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. BUA’s distinct style born on the city walls and subway trains — “New Urban Realism”, captures the essence of contemporary culture as expressed through the memories of BUA’s turbulent youth, navigating the streets and underground worlds of the urban jungle and the birth of the hip hop scene. Following in the footsteps of the great masters, BUA represents the lives of both the revered and the marginalized, the heroes and the underdogs of our time.
