Bobo Yo lives and works in Phoenix, AZ, USA. His artwork stretches from painting and photography to street art. Bobo sees his art practice as an ongoing process of improvisational free-play. The more irreverent and boundless, the more unexpected 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.
Yo says, “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 my process — on a real hunt — for the distinction between intellect and transcendence.”
