“I’ve always considered popping to be one of the greatest dance forms of all time,” explains BUA, who started popping when he was just 11. “The piece is a testament to the history and the legacy of one of the greatest dance forms the earth has ever known.”
Like all of BUA’s work which are celebrations of urban culture, his latest poster is for Mr Wiggles, who BUA claims is our generation’s Mikhail Baryshnikov. “But,” he adds “this piece is for all of the poppers out there who rep the culture raw, like Popping Pete, Bogaloo Sam, Sugar Pop, Skeeter Rabbit, Steen, Boogaloo Shrimp, Rubber Band, Poppin’ Taco, Salah–and the list goes on and on.”
“The Popper” can be purchased now only as an exclusive at BUA’s Facebook store!
