OVERView

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.

His many travels have allowed him to communicate, to surprise passers-by, encouraging them to reflect and share his love for colorful urban spaces. Leaving his marks in major cities around the world. Cartoon characters have continued to gain importance in his art until they became more important than letters.
