Price: $25.99

"There is no book like The Beat of Urban Art which combines visual art with history, social commentary, and a narrative autobiography. In a time of re-dos, re-makes, and re-mixes, BUA has spearheaded a truly unique and original style. His work will be some of the only from our era to stand the test of time. Your children's children's children will love BUA." -Big Daddy Kane

In The Beat of Urban Art, artist BUA brings us his groundbreaking vision, which melds urban rhythms, graffiti, and classical 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."

In the legacy of the masters, Justin BUA represents the lives of both 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 accompanied by drawings, sketches, studies, and explanations of how even his most famous paintings were created, The Beat of Urban Art takes you into the head of the Toulouse-Lautrec of our time.
