Based in Miami, Lobo crafts sculptures and paintings from a everyday materials, everything from concrete and aluminum to velcro, play-doh, and bio-foam. These textural, corporeal objects resemble future artifacts of our contemporary culture—technicolor, gooey relics of urban life. Past projects of his have dealt with flight patterns, the “atomic structure” of music (he co-created an app in 2013 that stretches out songs by up to 100,000,000%), and an obscure, supposedly aphrodisiacal energy drink.
Lobo works often with imprints of the body and will apply his expertise with clay to a one-of-a-kind spa experience titled “Miami body industry spa.” Invited guests will be able to relax and enjoy a custom-made face mask concocted by Lobo himself, with the help of a cosmetologist.
