BustArt is a Swiss street artist. His technical focus lays on freehand work sometimes supported by stencils. As BustArt started his artistic career, there were no commercial aspects of the art as it is today. Likewise, urban art did happen exclusively on the streets while contract works as well as exhibitions of this art form were largely untapped. Since the beginning, the prior motivation was to paint for the people. Sharing inspiration with everybody is the main aim of his art. BustArt will always be faithful to this maxim.

Travis Lampe grew up in a small town in Kansas. After earning a degree in Graphic Design, he took a job in advertising as an art director in Chicago. While making ads for breakfast cereals and well known purveyors of inexpensive furniture over a period of several years, he secretly began “developing his illustration style,” which is not the same thing as “procrastinating.” Finally, when he felt the world was ready, he began his slow explosion onto the art and illustration scene, as it were. He currently lives and works in Chicago.

“I am an self-taught artist from Newport News, VA. I began to pursue art as a child drawing everything from cartoons, comics, action figures and athletes. My inner thoughts and my experiences are captured through bright bold colors coupled with images from my childhood which are utilized to express myself. I consider my art a mix of pop and street art. I draw influences from my surroundings and try to incorporate the ever changing world of pop culture into my artwork.
