New Justin Bua Poster, The Popper, is an Ode to Breakdancing Legends Everywhere
September 9, 2011
We are such fans of Justin Bua and his style, which reminds us of the great Ernie Barnes, who’s Sugar Shack painting became famous on televisions Good Times. With as much intensity, fluidity and creativity as his predecessor, Bua reflects a modern, urban and intellectual sensibility that attracts soulheads like us. We became a fan of his years ago when we began seeing his images in galleries and poster shops around Manhattan and then in Brooklyn. We were really excited to see friend of the site Jay Period’s portrait done by Bua. What a complement that must have been to have your portrait done by a modern legend. To get a closer look at some of Bua’s work, you can visit actor Anthony Mackie (Notorious) No Bar on Nostrand Avenue and Pacific Street in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn.
