MOMO is an artist working in public spaces with homemade tools. His current interests lie with an evolving range of adapted masonry techniques to draft, design, and organize wall murals. Born in San Francisco in 1974, MOMO has travelled most of his life, lived in New York for six years and currently keeps a studio in New Orleans.

In 2008 Rojo published his first monograph “3AM-6AM;” in 2012 Studio Cromie published his second, “In 74 Pieces.” In 2013 May Gallery hosted his first immersive installation show “Butt Joints” in New Orleans; Studio Cromie produced a Caribbean painting tour and exhibition in Southern Italy; and the New York DOT commissioned a 200-foot-long mural between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges in Dumbo, Brooklyn. In 2015 MOMO created a 250 ft wide lobby mural for the John Hancock Tower in Boston, a 250 foot tall mural in downtown Philadelphia, and a double-facade 5 story printed vinyl mural in Manhattan, produced by Art Production Fund NY. In 2016 he and friends Maya Hayuk, Swoon, and Faile inaugurated the new Millennium Iconoclast Museum of Art in Brussels, with installations on five floors.
