Anymore I find most of my new friends via instagram, which sounds ridiculous out loud but nowadays is it really? Always looking for cool new artists, I found Jojo's account and immediately fell in love with his bright collages featuring my favorite style babes-- Brigitte Bardot, Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss, etc. Basically aesthetic twins with our shared love for pop colors and pop icons, I had to know more about the man behind these playful works! Get to know all about Jojo and his NYC life in our CULT Chat below>>
