The allegory of Hercules At The Crossroads is about the choice we make about the path we lead; will it be a virtuous life or a sinful life? Hercules is caught in the middle, trying to choose (though I always show him looking towards the light). Buff Monster made a name for himself by putting up thousands of hand-silkscreened posters across Los Angeles, and other far-away places. His work is characterized by happy characters living in brightly-colored bubbly landscapes. Along with meticulously executed paintings, he has created a wide range of merchandise ranging from prints and stickers, to vinyl toys and plush. The color pink, a symbol of confidence, individuality and happiness, is present in everything he creates. And he often cites heavy metal music, ice cream and Japanese Culture as major influences. His work has been shown in galleries worldwide, often accompanied by large installations. In 2010, the Bristol City Museum acquired a painting of his for their permanent collection. He was also featured in Banksy’s movie: Exit Through the Gift Shop. Buff Monsters’ art has been published in a variety of magazines, websites, newspapers and books, including Cool Hunting,The LA Times, LA Weekly, The New York Times, and more. Clients include: Apple, Coca-Cola, Converse, Hello Kitty, Montana-Cans and more. In 2019 Justin Bieber hosted an art auction for artworks sold to benefit charities over Christmas. The auction featured works from some of Justin’s favorite artists, with Buff Monster included.
