Joey Obso is a graffiti artist and muralist born and raised in Charlotte, NC. He has played a large role in pioneering the local public art scene. A student of the craft, he studied in the streets and abandoned buildings around the region. Lessons were learned through experimenting with all available spray paint techniques, in a relentless effort to steadily improve upon his past. While his work today is rarely contained within one specific style, his shapes and colors are infused with a youthful energy and sense of exploration, bright, bold and full of expression. Obso currently operates Big Trouble Studios, with space in Plaza Midwood. He has created large scale murals and paintings for restaurants, offices and organizations, while also finding a balance by continuing to create personal works. In the future he hopes to find new mediums to explore and bring his work to exotic places, while inspiring others along the way.
