Art Of Hip Hop to Host Renowned Artist, Bua for an Exclusive Talk And Signing

Sponsored By

June 4 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Enjoy an evening of culture and conversation at Art of Hip Hop – Miami’s leading cultural exhibition space and world’s leading destination dedicated to celebrating Hip Hop’s visual artists – with BUA, one of the best-selling print artists that has ever lived, with over 26 million prints sold worldwide.

BUA’s distinctive figurative style combines his classical training with his background in graffiti and breakdancing. The subjects of his paintings range from recognizable figures, such as Snoop Dogg, Tu Pac, and a Tribe Called Quest to anonymous people pulled from his memories, including his infamous DJ for which he has become best known. Each of BUA\’s subjects is ennobled within the urban landscape he paints and is often rendered with elongated limbs or hands, emphasizing the rhythm of the scene. BUA exhibits worldwide with a fan base that ranges from former presidents, actors, musicians, professional athletes, and dancers, to street kids and art connoisseurs.

BUA will be signing a print along with his book The Beat of Urban Art, in which he lays out his unique vision, melding urban rhythms, graffiti, and classical art training. This visually arresting book is about his life, his work, and the birth of Hip-Hop. As we follow BUA through his turbulent youth, navigating he streets and underground worlds of the urban jungle, we recognize the powerful evolution of BUA’s distinct style—”Distorted Urban Realism.”

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
