FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel Announces Bobo Yo’s “RE: appropriation” March Exhibit

FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel Announces Bobo Yo’s “RE: appropriation” March Exhibit

Art Show
The FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel is excited to announce artist Bobo Yo’s “RE:appropriation” exhibit opening on Friday, March 1. An artist’s reception will be held at 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in conjunction with Downtown Phoenix’s First Friday Art Walk. The exhibit will also have additional show hours during Art Detour Weekend, Friday, March 15 through Sunday, March 17, and will remain on display through Sunday, March 31. “The impetus for these works is a continuation of my blend of retro and pop culture,” says Bobo Yo. “This exhibit features outsider art and Japanese anime combined with the influence of today’s bubbling pop culture — with paintings hovering between graffiti and calligraphy.” The exhibit references Bobo’s childhood heroes and contemporary anti-heroes, as well as colliding themes of youth, beauty, and fading memories. Throughout the exhibit, guests can view re-use and re-imaging of familiar figures from Bobo’s childhood such as Popeye, Olive Oyl, Batman and Robin, and Betty Boop as well characters from today like Homer Simpson, Pikachu and Stewie from Family Guy.
