Hobés dogged pursuance of perfection within his various art forms has seen him travel extensively looking for inspiration wherever he can find it. Currently based out of Atlanta, Georgia Hobés ultimate desire is to encourage the youth to achieve their greatest potential despite adversity and to enrich the lives of others through the beauty and subliminal messages of his art.
The techniques that I use come from years of creating stencils, painting and illustration; each piece is a mash-up of pop culture and iconic imagery.
What Inspires You?
The inspiration for my work comes from everyday life and the layers of life that make up a whole. Each one of my pieces incorporates different layers and iconic nostalgic imagery from comic books, music, logos and patterns. There are always subtle subliminal messages in each piece that draw from pop culture. I tend to use loud and vibrant colors because nothing says in your face happiness like some bright color.
Why He is RED?
Hobés art is bold, vibrant and full of life and that’s everything that RED stands for. His art from afar looks like a mishmash of amazing bright colors, patterns, words and characters but we love how when you get a closer look you’re able to see the incredible detail that has gone into Hobés paintings. We also cannot get enough of the pop art elements to his work either!
