Biography
Brian “Bojo” Bojanowski grew up in Oconomowoc, WI and currently resides in Rock Hill, SC.  He is a proud and adoring father of two wonderful boys and husband to his gorgeous wife Wendi (she’s going to hate that I said that… truth hurts baby!).  Brian spends his days as an Elementary School Art Teacher.  In 2001 he and his wife (the gorgeous one) founded an art enrichment program for children called “Noah’s Art”.  Together they spent 14 years developing and expanding their business to encompass 8 studios between Boston and Florida.  In 2014 Brian started a year long art project entitled “Phifty Two Weeks” in which he created one unique art piece per week and documented it on his blog.  Throughout the phifty-two week journey Brian explored a variety of projects and mediums creating wooden shadowboxes, carving scrimshaw (cutting into whale teeth/bones), designing and printing a skateboard deck, scratchboard art, creating action figures, taking photographs, suspending objects in jars filled with hair gel, oil painting, just to name a few.  Throughout this exploitative process Brian discovered and fell in love with the process of screenprinting.  Bojo dove head first into creating screenprinted posters and prints and even set up his own printing studio – Studio 52.
