Michael Bo Jensen
Born in southern Denmark, 1981

Graduaded with a Bachelor of Arts in illustration from College of Arts in Nykøbing Falster, 2003
and completed a 4 year apprenticeship as Sign Painter in Copenhagen, 2008.
After graduating Michael has worked with project managing and art direction for a variety of
established institutions and brands such as Dom Perignon, Ai Weiwei Studio Berlind and Volvo to name a few..

Working with various clients with different needs evolved his skills and taught him an
aestethic approach to designing visual language for screen, print and physical space.
Influenced by scandinavian design history and carries out a passion for the traditional
craft of illustration and sign painting.

Michael grew up heavily inspired by the expression of youthculture, skateboarding and graffiti
wich still is apparent in his illustrative work, when you walk the streets of Copenhagen you might
find his illustrations on murals around the capital.

Now working freelance and living part time in Denmark and Costa Rica.
