Over the past decade and a half Cojo has been firmly etching his signature line art style into the upper echelon of the NY editorial elite, seamlessly straddling the hip-hop world into the mainstream magazines, while staying grounded by the lofty Art Scene Status-Symbol-Sophisticates. His style propelled him quickly to the top of the commercial art and illustration world, and due to his global recognition is now rapidly elevating him into view of celebrities, as well as art writers, bloggers, and New York Gallerists.
Cojo's signature sharp thick outline drawing style (CojoArt.com) is one of the most commonly imitated, copied, and plagiarized styles today. Cojo sees this as a form of flattery, as many impostors as there are, there is only one original.
In 2005 celebrating his 28th birthday Cojo began a yearlong conceptual art project wherein he drew a sketch a day for 365 days (Sketch365.com ) concluding on his 29th birthday. The sketches were broken down into 10 Subjects, which is the title and theme of Cojo's next show. Ten eight foot by 3 foot canvases based on the ten subjects.
Cojo ® is a Global Behemoth, but can he make the leap from commercial art to fine art? His commercial work has been printed in sixteen countries and fourteen languages. He's been printed in Maxim Magazine (the world's largest Men's Lifestyle Magazine) close to one hundred times. His artwork has been featured in Rolling Stone Magazine, ESPN Magazine, WWE Magazine, Vibe Magazine, XXL Magazine, King Magazine, Ecko's Complex Magazine, Black Book Magazine, and dozens of others. He's done Fat Albert art for FUBU, Air Force 1 art for Nike, Black History Month art for Nickelodeon, Spring Break art for MTV.
Cojo has done portraits and commissions for such A-List clientele as: Busta Rhymes, Jay-Z, Ja Rule, Redman, Cam'ron, Lil' Kim, Usher, Mario, Ashanti, Opie and Anthony, and many others.
The Art Juggernaut is unstoppable.
