Biography / BustArt

Hailing from the streets of Basel, Switzerland is BustArt, a street artist best known for his colourful and complex graffiti that can be described as ‘Street Pop-Art’. BustArt’s work is featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect.’

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.
