ALLROUNDER – Curse or blessing? Bobby utilizes almost anything digital or analog he can get his hands on for his art with surprising results. His preferences are comic books, markers and spray glue. Unfortunately, he usually annoys everyone with his bad mood and he is a little freaky since he develops very intensive relationships to the characters he created, but we still like him.
Autodidact, loner, hermit. During the 90’s he used to scrawl abandoned factories, 'cause he didn’t dare to draw straight lines. Enventually he cocooned in his room and much rather worked on the back of his locker or on canvas. Cans and markers are still part of his repertoire that pretty much includes everything in color. All his art pieces pile up in his room and every once in a while find their way into a gallery. He also makes brilliant music, analog as well as digitally.
Being an ex-surfer and stunt man, Mr. Vega is one physically fit dude with an active mind and explosion approved. It doesn´t matter if we are talking about streetcar surfing or falling off of bridges he takes part in almost everything extreme. Catch him for a Sunday stroll through the botanic gardens with his pitbulls, or tattooing big black tribals onto the lower backs of beautiful women. If he isn´t touring through Rio or Shanghai he can be found in Berlin where he always offers his seat in jam-packed trains to elderly passengers – a true gentleman at heart!
He started out as a BMX boy during the 90s. He didn´t get the job of a skateboarder, 'cause he couldn´t figure out where to attach the training wheels. He always used to scribble which eventually led to drawing. After sticking his nose into too many comic books he started turning his friends into comic characters as well. After the battery of his electric pencil sharpener died he turned to a computer instead. With amazement he realized that his PC had more to offer than just „Paint“.
