NOV 9th, 2013 – Pomona, CA
The legendary visual artist Justin Bua, a.k.a. BUA paid the GCS Clothing Store a visit for a signing to coincide with the release of his new painting “The Boom Box”. A true amercian artist, Justin Bua has become one of the most recognizable artist in the world. He has been a part of countless artistic, academic and commercial endevours touching nearly every facet of the hip hop, music and art world. As described on his wiki page:
his work “is also heavily influenced by Ernie Barnes, the… creator of the “Sugar Shack” painting featured in the opening credits of the television sitcom Good Times (1974–1979) and Marvin Gaye’s album I Want You (1976). The style is recognized for elongated limbs that represent rhythmic movement.” It continues to describe BUA as “Currently, he teaches figure drawing at the University of Southern California, while continuing to be a leading innovator in both the fine and commercial art worlds. Bua’s energetic and vocal worldwide fan base ranges from former presidents, actors, musicians, professional athletes, and dancers, to street kids and art connoisseurs”.
Coming fully loaded with Prints, Reproductions and Posters of his work, this event was a great chance for some of his most hard core fans to purchase directly from the artist these charished items. Fans, art lovers, musicians, fellow artists and performers alike were on hand for the special appreance. They came in snatching up BUA pieces and snapping pictures as momentos of the night and in appreciation to what Bua’s art means to them.
We look forward to working again with BUA on future events and projects… look out for BUA to come to a GCS near you.
