Bijijoo

BIOGRAPHY

His work draws on his technical background in math, science and computer programming, as well as his young daughter's imagination and love of monsters. After getting a Ph.D. in biophysics (2008), he began painting several series of surrealist works, including The Presidential Ham, Celebrity Still Life, and The Arthropod Companion. After a break that included remodeling an old house and becoming a father, he has reset his painting practice. B lives in Portland, Oregon (USA) with his wife and daughter.
