Born in Iran, raised in Hong kong and educated in Europe. Mojoko (aka Steve Lawler) attended the prestigious FABRICA art residency in Treviso, Northern Italy in 2001. His artistic work is an exploration of Trash Pop culture colliding with the Old & historical, mixing media such as computer programming, digital sculpture, painting and printmaking. His works have regularly been showcased around the world at International Institutions and independent galleries.
“Reacting to the bombardment of images of todays visual culture, he reworks and spits out mutations of the glossy pop, advertising world. The work is a reaction to living in Modern Asia. The TV, internet, outdoor advertising culture has influenced every aspect of his work, and his focus is dedicated to learning those tools of Visual Communication in order to subvert them.”
Now Creative director of The Unusual Network, an international collection of creators, he is responsible for the new quarterly publication EYEYAH! An illustrated guide to the world for kids (and kidults)
