Buff Monster is an American urban artist who grew up in Hawaii. He made a name for himself by adding thousands of hand-silkscreened posters and character tags to the Los Angeles landscape. His work often features devilishly cute squirting and bubbly characters that live in sweet and colorful universes. Along with his fine art paintings, Buff Monster has created a wide range of merchandise, from prints and stickers to vinyl toys and plush dolls.
In 2012, he released The Melty Misfits, his homage to the iconic Garbage Pail Kids trading cards. Buff Monster has claimed pink as a color of power, and he cites heavy metal music, ice cream and Japanese Culture as major influences. His work, including large installations, has been shown in galleries and included in museum collections worldwide. His art has been published in a variety of magazines, websites, newspapers and books, including Juxtapoz, Paper, Nylon, Cool Hunting, Angeleno, The Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, The New York Times, and many more. In 2012, after 15 years living and working in Hollywood, Buff Monster moved to New York City.
