ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Samuel “Sho” Ho (Canada)
Published: March 3, 2013 - 8:32am
This week's Artist's Corner features an artist that continuously blurs the line between fine art and innovative commercial work, taking some of the most well known pop culture iconography and turning it into highly sought after collector's pieces.
Samuel “Sho” Ho is a professional designer/illustrator by trade but an artist at heart. Hailing from Canada he has had his hands in designing everything from fashion lines and diamond jewelry to furniture and athletic shoes. He learned his skills by working the designer circuit in Manhattan, New York, and was inspired to take up illustration from his Brooklyn roommates.
Sho has refused to pledge to just one discipline of art and design so he continues to take on multi-faceted projects. He has worked with clients such as Marvel, Hasbro, Sanrio, Puma USA and many more well known companies.
