BUJA

Introducing BUJA

René Burjack lives and works in Heidelberg, Mannheim and Karlsruhe, Germany. The works of Buja reach from the use of sensational media / the yellow press over world politics to pop culture and street art. In his works, figures are taken from their contexts, are being dissembled and put together again – thereby creating new combinations and arrangements. His large-format and often provoking works allude to the works of Michel Majerus, Sigmar Polke and Blek Le Rat.

What we love about BUJA

A grungy Frida Kahlo taking a puff or the Virgin Mary kneeling to take a selfie in front of a doily-inspired backdrop. Buja is unapologetic about his manipulation of revered personalities from the public domain. Borrowing from graffiti styles, Buja has an almost brazen approach to mixing stencils, cut-outs and oils.
