About Buff Monster

Buff Monster’s work is most immediately recognizable through the artist’s use of the color pink, which he associates with confidence, individuality, and empowerment. He emphasizes the precision and attention to detail behind the playful content of his works, and cites Japanese culture, heavy metal, and Pop Art as his biggest influences. Buff Monster has also re-imagined characters from his childhood as various toys, trading cards, and stickers. Similar to his large-scale murals, he enjoys the juxtaposition of whimsy and meticulous execution. In addition to several prominent collaborations with brands such as Disney, Coca-Cola, and Converse, Buff Monster was featured in Banksy’s Oscar-nominated documentary, “Exit Through the Gift Shop.”

American, b. 1979
