Bolo is a multi-disciplinary artist duo. With a process that is complementary in nature, the chemistry and dynamism creates a certain openness through which rigor and toil comfortably flow.
Bolo believes art can make the viewer consider a different perspective. The work attempts to open minds and challenge norms. Bolo, itself is a product of crossing borders by way of numerous migrations. Fueled by it’s roots in Pakistan and it’s home in New York City, Bolo insists that humanity is universal, regardless of which side of the border one is on. Dreams, aspirations, fears and basic needs are ubiquitous. Ultimately, humanity and the need to connect is universal and knows no borders.
