Statement

Bobo Yo is presently living and working in Phoenix, AZ, USA. His production stretches from painting to street art. Bobo sees art as an ongoing process of free-play. The more irreverent and boundless, the more unexpected is the result. In his creative and destructive chaos, images are manipulated, painted, torn apart, and rearranged. Bobo’s style is a blend of retro and pop culture. Outsider art and Japanese Cos-play combine with the influence of today’s bubbling verbal culture. 

Different worlds and contexts can happen on the streets, in the urban landscape, or in nature on the edge of the desert. Curiosity and discovery drive the process — on a real hunt — for the distinction between intellect and transcendence.
