Art Attack with Lizy Dastin and Justin BUA is a new kind of art podcast—engaging, informed, accessible and raw. Join artist BUA and art historian Lizy as they debate topical artworld happenings, bringing their unique—often contradictory—perspectives to the conversation.

BUA is an internationally distinguished painter, television personality, writer, entrepreneur and teacher. He is perhaps best known for his renderings of often-overlooked characters that define the urban landscape; for instance, his iconic image, The DJ, has become one of the most celebrated and reproduced prints of all time. BUA has roots in the graffiti scene in New York City, co-created and hosted the Street Art Throwdown competition series for the Oxygen Network, and has published two acclaimed books, The Beat of Urban Art and The Legends of Hip Hop, through Harper Collins.

Lizy Dastin is an Art History instructor at UCLAx and Santa Monica College with a focus on contemporary art and urban practice. She has previously taught at Chapman University, The American Jewish University, Mercy College and the School of Visual Arts and has worked on curatorial projects at the Metropolitan Museum, the International Center of Photography and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Lizy, founder of street art information hub Art and Seeking, is a passionate advocate of street art and its makers and is committed to creating a digital archive of this otherwise ephemeral practice.

Best art podcast out there

This podcast is EVERYTHING! BUA is smart, interesting and flat out hilarious while Lizy keeps us grounded and on topic. They are the quintessential dynamic duo! I’m supplementing my art history classes with these two as they are way more entertaining and magical then any of my art professors. Just Awesomeness!!!

Pretty good

I enjoy some of the banter and pace of the show. Sometimes there is definitely some incorrect information, and Bua is pretty arrogant and sometimes straight rude about types of art he deems “inferior.”

Love the Passion and Diverse Opinions of Lizy & Justin

When I first started listening to art-related podcasts, I focused on The Lonely Palette and ArtCurious; while I still love each of them, they miss one key element: a diversity of opinion. To me, that is so important in reviewing art as it relieves the pressure of feeling like you have to love an artist or artwork. Lizy and Justin often have different opinions but respect each other's points of view and have a great chemistry on the mic; it translates into something incredible.

They've brought my attention and admiration to so many other artists I wasn't previously familiar with, and although sometimes they go on tangents, it is great to hear from two people not going off a script who have such a passion for what they do.

I've loved so many episodes, but if I have to pick one, it would be Icons of the Night. This episode really helped me understand the importance of knowing the history behind a work (what was taking place in 1942) when looking at art (Hopper's Nighthawks). Now that you've covered Schiele, I'd love to one day hear a Caspar David Friedrich episode :)!
