My name is Jhosep Bocanegra - J Bo. Originally, I am from Colombia, grew up in the Netherlands and currently living for more than 15 years in the breathtaking beauty of Mallorca.
My artistic journey began with a big fascination for Anime manga during my younger years. Intrigued by the characters I started sketching them myself. I couldn´t capture the essence of my favorite characters, but I didn´t give up and kept on practicing. Slowly I saw a transformation of my art, started to participate in competitions and even won some of them.
I wanted to develop myself more by following an art or graphic school, but I got refused, because my level of Dutch and English. I was disappointed about the rejections, but it didn´t make me stop continue being creative and express myself through art. I truly believe that hard work and self-belief can conquer any obstacles.
Inspired by great artists like Vincent van Gogh and Andy Warhol I recognize their humble beginnings.
I love to experiment with various techniques and materials. For me, my art is not just creation; it's a sanctuary of peace and liberty.
