Buff Monster

Buff Monster lives and works in New York City. He’s a tireless worker, often citing heavy metal music, ice cream, Pop art, Japanese Culture and graffiti as major influences. His meticulously executed paintings have been shown in galleries around the world; one painting hangs in the Bristol City Museum as part of their permanent collection. He’s also created a variety of limited edition collectibles including vinyl and resin toys, prints, shirts, stickers and two series of his ambitious trading cards/stickers called The Melty Misfits. He’s worked with some of the most recognizable brands such as Disney, Converse, Hello Kitty, Samsung, Nike, Coca-Cola and others. He’s created work in the streets for over 15 years. In 2015, Jeffrey Deitch asked him to participate in a mural project in Coney Island. He’s included in Banksy’s Oscar-nominated documentary: Exit Through the Gift Shop. And along the way, he’s cultivated an impressive social media following.
