Top City Artist with Justin Bua

Show Summary

Top City Artist with Justin BUA is an original series from The Sundance Channel starring New York City artist Justin BUA, a man whose stylized portrayals of urban characters and scenes has earned him a devoted and large fan base but has thus far failed to receive any recognition from major museums and art galleries. Justin BUA's work has been honored time and time again. He's sold more posters than any other living artist. His work has appeared in video games, on skateboards, and on shoes. His paintings have been purchased by fine art collectors such as Eva Longoria, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jay-Z, and President Clinton. Despite all his achievements, he's never been able to find widespread acceptance among the elite of the art world. This series follows BUA as he tries to find a place for himself in the high art scene, and seeks to reveal if his work hasn't been recognized because it's really not good enough, or if it's being discriminated against for its gritty, urban style.moreless
