Yoyo Ferro was born in Piracicaba in the state of São Paulo, Brazil but now makes his home in Atlanta. His first venture into the arts was through music playing bass in a Brazilian punk rock band (which was a rare “thing” in country Brazil). That sense of nonconformity can be seen in his murals even today. His whimsical abstract art features bright primary colors bounded by a single continuous looping black line. Yoyo Ferro’s public art can be found in murals, and on building façades all over Atlanta.
