If you’re a true fan of art of many sorts, then you definitely know about Justin Bua, who’s well known by the name, BUA. I’m pretty sure that you’re familiar with some of his work, but if not… then check the art reel (video) above. He’s released quite a few books showcasing his art, and if you’re fan of his work, then I think you should personally purchase one of his pieces! They’re amazing!
He has a new book coming out called The Legends Of Hip Hop, which consists of his art painting fifty key figures from Afrika Bambaataa to Jay-Z, and more! He will touring the country with DJs Q-Bert & Beastie Boys DJ, Mix Master Mike (whom are BOTH featured in the book as well). The first stop is in San Francisco (flyer above) at The Independent.. which will have both DJs performing together. This is their first event that they’ve performed together in over ten years!
