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.

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.

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.

SHOWS Vivid VisionsInfused with hypersaturated color combinations, the paintings of Grant Wiggins represent an amalgam of graphic inspirations. His design-intensive “maximalist” paintings jam together bold lines, vivid color combinations, and complex patterns — tapping into the visual energy of mass-market design while circumventing the psychological warfare that underlies the motivations of the marketplace. Wiggins is the only artist in Arizona to show consecutively in the 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2009 editions of the Arizona Biennial, held at the Tucson Museum of Art. He also has exhibited his paintings twice at Phoenix Art Museum and in the inaugural TCA Biennial, at the Tempe Center for the Arts. Recent gallery experience includes shows with Soyal Gallery and Squeeze Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona, as well as Thomas Hayes Gallery in Hollywood, California.
