Michael Bo Jensen
Denmark, 1981

Growing up in the mid-nineties heavily inspired by street culture, skateboarding, and graffiti, which is still apparent in his work. Passion for visual aestethics also came ealier on, Mom made cigars and Dad was a printmaker, hence growing a large collection of vintage cigar boxes and stickers with graphics, illustrations, and typography.

Today he is an independent artist and illustrator working from his studio in central Copenhagen. Well known for his captivating universe, detailed line work, and eye popping details. The style is young, bold and yet timeless, often imbued with mystery and delivered by a high level of craftsmanship and attention. 

Michael works with mixed media in any scale, from analog and digital illustration to printmaking, painting, and murals. He collaborated with a multitude of established artists, institutions, and brands. Recently created work for “The Dream Ship” at M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark, which was nominated for a Danish Design Award 2020, in the category Better Learning.
