Street artist Buff Monster is currently in the UK where he wrapped up a new piece for UpFest in Bristol. His latest piece spans a few stories high and features his signature melty characters interacting with one another. Buff will also have an opening tomorrow night in London at Stolen Space gallery.
Buff Monster recently presented a solo show entitled “Melt With Me” that was on display last week in NYC. The show is a culmination of over a year of explorations in sculpture, from the smooth sexy large scale pieces to the gritty smaller concrete ones. The show is taking place at a great location right near my studio that he’s wanted to use for a long time.
The one and only Buff Monster recently teamed up with clothing company Black Milk to release an incredible new fashion line. Featuring his signature Stay Melty characters the new line features garments from blouses and skirts to dresses. Take a look and grab some gear HERE and see more promo images after the jump.

“I first met Buff Monster back in the debauchery of Miami Art Basel 2014. I had a few too many cocktails and Buff had crazy hair plus some smooth looking shades. Fast forward to Basel 2015, again after one too many cocktails at the Swizz Beats No commission art fair I spot Buff Monster at the back of the room quietly sipping on the free drinks laid out by Bacardi.
Learning from my mistake in the previous year I decided to take a couple of days out in NYC before heading back across the pond. With just with my ol’ faithful DSLR I decided to give Buff a call and pay a random, last minute visit to his studio before jumping on a flight back home.”
