Buff Monster lives in Hollywood and cites heavy metal music, ice cream and Japanese culture as major influences. The color pink, as a symbol of confidence, individuality and happiness, is present in everything he creates. He was originally known for putting up thousands of hand-silkscreened posters across Los Angeles and also in far-away places. When his original and one-and-only wheat paste brush was no longer usable, seven years of frequent poster missions came to an end. Having given up a very productive street art career, he now works exclusively on fine art paintings, collectible toys and select design projects.
He paints on wood, taking great care to create them as flat as possible. His work has been shown in numerous galleries, usually creating large installations to accompany the paintings. He has released loads of signature vinyl toys through MINDstyle, and has many other projects in the works with other leading toy companies. His art has been published in a long list of magazines, newspapers and books, including Juxtapoz, Vapors, Angeleno, XLR8R, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and others. Buff Monster works tirelessly day and night to spread happiness, joy and a love of pink.
