Groundbreaking artist Justin BUA is internationally known for his bestselling collection of fine art posters The DJ being one of the most popular prints of all time. Starting in the world of commercial art, BUA designed and illustrated myriad projects, from skateboards and CD covers to advertising campaigns. He developed the look and feel of the opening sequence for MTV's Lyricist Lounge Show, EA Sports video games NBA Street and NFL Street, and the world of Slum Village's award-winning music video "Tainted," among others. His line of apparel and his limited edition sneakers sold out completely. His energetic and vocal worldwide fan base ranges from former presidents, actors, musicians, professional athletes, and dancers to street kids and art connoisseurs.
In his first book, The Beat of Urban Art, BUA lays out his unique vision, melding urban rhythms, graffiti, and classical art training. This visually arresting book is about his life, his work, and the birth of Hip-Hop. As we follow BUA through his turbulent youth, navigating the streets and underground worlds of the urban jungle, we recognize the powerful evolution of BUA's distinct style, "Distorted Urban Realism."
Following in the footsteps of the great masters, BUA represents the lives of the revered and the marginalized, the heroes and the underdogs of his time New York City during the 1970s and '80s.
With an autobiographical narrative illustrated with photographs, drawings, sketches, studies, and explanations on how many of his paintings were created, The Beat of Urban Art takes you into the head of the modern-day Toulouse-Lautrec.

Since the early 1990s, Justin BUA has been making a mark in the art world with the unique style he has named Distorted Urban Realism, spearheading a new genre of art. Born in 1968 in New York City's untamed Upper West Side and raised in Manhattan and East Flatbush, Brooklyn, BUA was fascinated by the raw visceral street life of the city. He attended the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and the Performing Arts and complemented his education by writing graffiti and performing worldwide with break-dancing crews. BUA went on to the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, where he earned a B.F.A. in Illustration. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and daughter and teaches at the University of Southern California.Review:
