Michael Bo Jensen 
Illustrator based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Michael works with mixed media on any scale from illustration and painting to print and installation. He has been commissioned for editorial and brand illustration as well as mural and architectural decoration.

His work often depicts the meeting between humans and nature through juxtaposing manmade objects and natural elements, shapes, and patterns. The work typically highlights cultural, social, or environmental issues of the Anthropocene. Walking the streets of Copenhagen you might find one of his murals in the Danish capital. Michael exhibited work in Denmark and Sweden.

He collaborated with several established institutions and brands such as Danish Workers Museum, Volvo, and M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark to name a few. Recently “The Dream Ship” at Maritime Museum of Denmark was nominated for a Danish Design Award 2020, in the category Better Learning.
