Lobo’s research-intensive, process-oriented production begins with deep immersion in a broad spectrum of topics, from fringe subcultures and hidden networks—the Raëlian movement, the Go-Go dance scene, illicit pirate radio—to points of friction within the urban milieu—transnational multi-service shops, illegal drug fabrication sites, informal markets. The list of materials he has employed ranges from grape-flavored cough syrup to play-dough, terrazzo, Napalm, and a defunct soft drink with supposed aphrodisiac qualities. In recent years, the Miami-based artist has focused on ways in which the human body extends into socioeconomic space, and vice versa.
