Stones' Guitarist & B-Boy Justin Bua to Exhibit at Artexpo
Like a Rolling Stone:
Unbeknownst to many, Ronnie Wood—the legendary guitarist and song writer for such bands as The Faces and The Rolling Stones—is also a painter. At age 4, Ronnie showed an appreciation for the Arts by first picking up a paintbrush and eventually the guitar, which led him to a super-stardom only experienced by a few. Outside of his career in music, Wood continued to paint. Moved by the musicians around him, he painted both on the road and in the studio. Inspired by the masters, Picasso, Caravaggio and Rembrandt, Ronnie’s work offers an intimate glimpse into the exclusive world of rock ‘n’ roll. Captivating portraits of Keith Richards, Slash, and Jimi Hendrix in a series called “Now, Then & Always” will debut at the show.
The King of Pop:
Old school b-boy, graffiti artist and painter Justin Bua will return to his hometown to display the King of Pop a stunning, limited edition giclée inspired by the late, great Michael Jackson. Known and collected by millions all over the world, Bua’s artwork is representative of a new generation of artwork that tells the tale of urban life—of DJs, masters of the mic, graffiti artists and break dancers. Bua’s masterful paintings, infused with both the rhythms of the street and classical training, tell the tales of urban life through a cast of city muses. To kick off Artexpo, Bua will be on site Saturday, March 27 for a personal appearance and signing. The first 500 visitors to the booth will receive a signed postcard of the “King of Pop.”
