About The Podcast
Art Attack with Lizy Dastin and Justin BUA is a new kind of art podcast—engaging, informed, accessible and raw. Join artist BUA and art historian Lizy as they debate topical artworld happenings, bringing their unique—often contradictory—perspectives to the conversation.
BUA is an internationally distinguished painter, television personality, writer, entrepreneur and teacher. He is perhaps best known for his renderings of often-overlooked characters that define the urban landscape; for instance, his iconic image, The DJ, has become one of the most celebrated and reproduced prints of all time. BUA has roots in the graffiti scene in New York City, co-created and hosted the Street Art Throwdown competition series for the Oxygen Network, and has published two acclaimed books, The Beat of Urban Art and The Legends of Hip Hop, through Harper Collins.
Lizy Dastin is an Art History instructor at UCLAx and Santa Monica College with a focus on contemporary art and urban practice. She has previously taught at Chapman University, The American Jewish University, Mercy College and the School of Visual Arts and has worked on curatorial projects at the Metropolitan Museum, the International Center of Photography and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Lizy, founder of street art information hub Art and Seeking, is a passionate advocate of street art and its makers and is committed to creating a digital archive of this otherwise ephemeral practice.
