SHOWS Vivid VisionsBuff Monster lives in Hollywood and cites heavy metal music, ice cream and Japanese culture as major influences. The color pink, a symbol of confidence, individuality and happiness, is present in everything he creates. Buff Monster’s creative endeavors began by putting up thousands of hand-silkscreened posters across Los Angeles and in far-away places. His frequent poster missions developed into a productive street art career, and he now works on fine art paintings, collectible toys and select design projects. He paints on wood, taking great care to create his images as flat as possible. His work has been shown in galleries worldwide, often accompanied by large installations. Buff Monster has released numerous signature vinyl toys through leading vinyl toy companies, and has many other projects in the works. His art has been published in a variety of magazines, websites, newspapers and books, including Juxtapoz, Paper, Nylon, Cool Hunting, Angeleno, The Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, The New York Times, and many more. He was recently featured in Banksy’s movie Exit Through the Gift Shop. And in January of this year he painted a mural on the exterior of The Standard Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. Buff Monster works tirelessly day and night to spread happiness, joy and a love of pink.
