We speak with internationally renowned artist Justin BUA about his upcoming shows and street art. Later we speak with Sarah Siskin about the Bay Area Mural Festival fundraiser.
ABOUT JUSTIN BUA: He’s an internationally renowned artist, author, speaker and entrepreneur. He currently lives in Los Angeles and is best known for his lyrical narrative paintings of musicians, DJs and similar characters who help define the urban landscape.
ABOUT THE BAY AREA MURAL FESTIVAL: The Bay Area Mural Festival (BAMFest 2016) will bring together master muralists and mural groups, and at risk youth through a series of artist residencies and workshops culminating in the painting of 5+ murals along the Berkeley- Oakland border. The theme of our festival will be focused on migration and displacement in our community. During the week of the festival (Fall 2016), artists will give lectures and workshops at La Peña Cultural Center. Our priority is to pay all of our artists a fair price for their work and participation.
