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. Staring 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 Lyrist 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 dangers to street kids and art connoisseurs.

In 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 he 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 of how many of his paintings were created, The Beat of Urban Art takes you into the head of the modern-day Toulouse-Lautrec.


“Bua does not do urban art—he is urban art.” (Sole Collector)

“Bua’s stylish renderings jump right at you, hit you between the eyes with their energy.” (Elmore Leonard, bestselling author)

“Whether celebrating hip-hop’s underground or reinterpreting cultural imagery ... Bua[’s] work challenges the mainstream art world’s images.” (Vibe)

Very cool art, caricatures and short stories on life 2009/10/21
投稿者 Parka - (Amazon.com)

This book is pretty cool. It mixes elements of street art, caricatures, music and city life. In The Beat of Urban Art, Justin Bua recollects how he grew up in New York on the Upper West Side, Manhattan and Brooklyn.

He sketches the people he met and the streets he grew up on. The pages are filled with caricatures of people who grew up in this tough neighbourhood. Life was so rough on the streets he sometimes had to act insane just to avoid getting mugged, and that was in East Flatbush, Brooklyn.

It's easy to get absorbed looking at the interesting caricatures but not to be missed is the inconspicuous background art which serves as a great story backdrop. There's a very textural and grainy look to the art. After reading through his experiences, it's hard to imagine any other style more apt. He names his style of art Distorted Urban Realism.

His coloured paintings, musical influence and artistic expression goes to the second part of the book.

It's a nice art book to have if you're into stylised art. There are hardcover and paperback editions.

A relevant art book 2007/3/14
投稿者 E. Bornstein - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
Finally an art book that is relevant to our times, humorous, political and thoughtful; wrapped into one powerful package. I never thought that art could be so easily embraced. The book speaks volumes of urban life in America. There are plenty of criticisms throughout the book about our society and the urban ghettos that plague our cities. However, what I found captivating was how the book captures the essence of hip-hop culture and shows how it has profoundly influenced American urban life by bringing inspiration, pride and hope to even the darkest alleys.

Justin Bua is not just a talented artist but he is prolific as well. His stylistic caricatures and illustrations with there amplified perspectives and edgy stylings bring the urban street scene to life in a poignant and entertaining way. He presents a diary of his life on the streets. He shows a cast of characters that resonate with energy and rhythm created by his skills at applying line, color and texture. Awesome! Justin Bua is a poet with a paint brush!

a beautiful book telling an important tale... 2007/5/19
投稿者 Sweetsumatra - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
I bought this book as part of research for a 15 min adaptation of a play Marisol (Jose Rivera) for my drama class. Bua's artwork is stunningly beautiful, with a great portrayal of a city that brings so much awe, culture and mystery...NYC (where marisol is staged).

his telling a story through art is an amazing feat, the colors are great and a few really nice quotes about progression in any artform is in need of skills, as the book states:

As one of my teachers Glenn Vilppu put it: "if you think of all the possible visual elements that you must learn as keys on a piano, the more keys you have, the wider the range of possibilities you can enjoy. Of course, you can make music with just a few keys, but that should be based on choice, not limitations."

Eloquent in his words and thoughts (and his teachers words for that matter), and passionate about his artform, i found the book a great story into the heart of new york.
