Born in New York City, BUA was fascinated by the raw, visceral Manhattan street life. BUA attended the High School of Music and Performing Arts ("Fame") and complemented his education on the streets by writing graffiti and performing worldwide with breakdancing crews such as The New York Express and The Dynamic Breakers. BUA went on to the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA where he earned a B.F.A. in Illustration. In addition to his studio art BUA currently teaches at the University of Southern California.
