Born in San Francisco in 1974, MOMO has travelled most of his life, lived in New York for six years and currently keeps a studio in New Orleans.In 2008 Rojo published his first monograph “3AM-6AM”, in 2012 Studio Cromie published his second, “In 74 Pieces”. In 2013 he worked with Re+Public Lab to develop a fully Augmented Reality mural in St Louis, May Gallery hosted his immersive installation show “Butt Joints” in New Orleans, Studio Cromie produced a Caribbean painting tour and exhibition in Southern Italy, and the New York DOT commissioned a 200 foot long mural between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges in Dumbo, Brooklyn.View PDF
