Born on the Upper West Side, Bua grew up in the hip-hop scene, his initial forays into art coming via graffiti. Later, he attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Through his academic training, Bua began to formulate a distinct aesthetic drawing influence from the culture that grew with him (hip-hop) and tying his work to past New York painting legends.
Bua is also a successful commercial artist, having provided visuals for the likes of EA Sports.
His New York show is hosted by Pop International Galleries, 473 West Broadway, New York.
