PROFILE: BO DROGA
Bo Droga’s art work is inspired by many things, usually by his immediate surrounding and the local material at hand. His artwork constantly changes depending on the type of materials and spaces that he encounters.
Sometimes he plays with contrasting themes, using positive and negative effects, other times his work will be very subtle and integrated into the environment. Bo’s artwork is mostly site specific and is developed after much consideration of the space and environment in which his artwork will reside.
“The common thread within my artwork is the simplicity in form, and use of everyday material”
Bo’s work is spontaneous and simplistic to the eye, appearing naive like a child’s drawing; however the ideology and work process, the relation to space, to the form and the environment are actually very precise and articulated. The discourse in his work is much defined and Bo can take days, sometimes months to define the methodology of the work, before assembling the final art piece.
“I want to present the simple inner qualities and charisma of the everyday material and objects, and revaluate and reconstruct a new dialogue with the viewer.”
There is much fun and play in Bo’s artwork and he likes to share this simple enjoyment of creating a different prospective.
