MOMO is known for thoughtful post-graffiti: tagging his name the width of Manhattan, creating over-sized collage, a fake New Yorker magazine cover, tide powered sculpture, a computer script which makes his art for him, and prints, paintings, and videos that rely on chance for fun and substance. In 2009 Rojo published his first monograph “3am-6am” and Y-3/Adidas created the MOMO shoes. In 2010 his art and installations were hosted by museums in Spain and Brazil, a residency in Florida and Fame Festival in Italy.
“Better Than 2009” at Anno Domini continues his recent experiments in paint with some support materials demonstrating his previous outdoor and system based art.
MOMO street art in Galicia, Spain, 2010
MOMO grew up in the East Bay but traveled most of his life before settling in New York. He joined a graffiti crew in 1999 while living in Spain, found his use of color while employed in the Caribbean, and fell for outside art while living outside: in a cave for a year, in a truck for a year, and in a tent for a year.
