We’ve featured artists who lack a discernible biography before, but I think Yoyo's spectral non-identity might be my favorite. There's the art tumblr, a facebook page, and a store, all providing the same fantastical narrative and gender-neutrality:
Born from an egg that came out of the ‘mountain of flowers and fruits’, flies across madagascar, drifts away through the ocean into london. *sound of an egg cracking*
So maybe from Madagascar? Maybe in London? Maybe a bird-wizard who masquerades as human(ish)? Who knows. What can be said, though, is that Yoyo’s art is incredible. It’s the best kind of dream art, full of lovable goofballs that melt, swirl, and pierce through their surfaces, some animated in GIFs and others floating in watercolor. Multimedia, multitechnical, and multi-cosmic, Yoyo’s world is the very opposite of corpselike—fun, brilliantly alive, and inclusively, embracingly weird.
What a surprise!! I was reading posts from the artists I follow then suddenly saw this
