Michael Bo Jensen

Independent artist and illustrator working from a studio in central Copenhagen.

Grew up on the country side near the forest and the sea. Mom made cigars and dad was a typographer, hence visual influence came early on from home. Mid-nineties street culture and proximity to nature also became important sources for my creative development.

Today I do visual storytelling through thorough craftmanship and contemporary imagery. Recently I created a series of martitime illustrations for “The Dream Ship”, at M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark, which was also nominated for a Danish Design Award 2020 in the category Better Learning.
