Pressestimmen

“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)

Synopsis

Bua, the artist who created the best-selling college dorm poster "The DJ," brings his unique urban art - melding hip-hop, graffiti, and old-school breakdancing styles - into this visually arresting book. Justin Bua creates cool art. With sketches, studies, and narrative explaining how his pieces were created, "The Beat of Urban Art" takes you into the head and heart of the Toulouse-Lautrec of our times - a man who paints the world he sees with a riot of colour and movement that is as unique and modern as the art created by Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Collectors of Bua's art include Bill Clinton, Robert De Niro, Will Smith, Alicia Silverstone, Christina Ricci, Mark Wahlberg, Whoopi Goldberg, and NBA star Damon Stoudamire, as well as popular singers and dancers too numerous to mention-from hip-hop artists to DJs to the inventors of Break Dancing and Popping. Teenagers upwards buy his posters, 700,000 units sold in the USA in 2004 alone. With BUA's hip urban subjects, high-profile artistry, and amazingly vibrant talent, "The Beat of Urban Art" will be a hit with old and new fans alike. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Von Parka TOP 1000 REZENSENT am 20. Oktober 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
Länge: 0:25 Minuten
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.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

A relevant art book 14. März 2007
Von E. Bornstein - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
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.

The Beat of Urban Art 26. September 2007
Von R. D. Orlemann - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
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... 19. Mai 2007
Von Sweetsumatra - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
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.
