BustArt replenishes his life through his graffiti pop works on one hand by skilful techniques and on the other hand in the use of cartoon characters as well as influences from his childhood. Icons Companions of My Life is a graffiti-pop exposition of the trademark style of BustArt, which is a mix of graffiti, pop art, cartoons and comics. The classic icons have accompanied BustArt throughout his artist career which they actively acted as an inspiration and became the subject matter in BustArt’s works. BustArt feels entitled to tear characters and icons from their contexts and provide a broader sense through new compositions.

Lives and works in Switzerland

Hailing from the streets of Basel, Switzerland is BustArt, a street artist best known for his colorful and complex graffiti that can be described as ‘Street Pop-Art’. BustArt’s style is like his method, extremely versatile. From freehand painting to stencils with up to 8 layers, he uses everything, as long as concrete walls are the canvas for his art. His artistic career began during the era of street art expansion, in 1999 with very classical graffiti writing. Since then he has picked up the many facets of the art form along the way and merges them in his artistic process. His iconic creations are not made with aerosol cans only, but also incorporate brushes, markers, and stencils. BustArt’s street art combines writing and figurative elements to contribute to urban aesthetics and to intrigue his audience about the issues behind the paintings.
