About the Work

"My Instagram feed is usually filled with posts of people taking photos in front of art; almost all have some corny inspirational, pseudo-intellectual, or motivational caption. Look at some of these people's profiles. You'll find hundreds if not thousands of photos of them standing in front of other people's art and making weird faces as if they knew something about what they're looking at. In all honesty, I have nothing against them, but they annoy the living hell out of me. This piece is a reflection of it." – CB Hoyo

Artist Statement

Throughout text art, I find the path to developing my own artistic voice and understanding of life. In my work, I capture and satirize contemporary society's essence and address topics that are usually thought of by many but spoken by a few. Exploring humanity's thoughts and behaviors is an integral part of my work process. These explorations constitute my prolific and reflexive network of allegories to the new bizarre normality we live in. All of them are proposed from a very personal perspective, marked by my own experiences and observation of the human condition.


Each edition is numbered, signed and comes with a free extra print and crayons for the collectors to create a personal corny quote. See example below.

About the 24-Hour Edition Drop

The 24-HOUR EDITION DROP is a concept that allows artists to sell an unlimited number of physical editions within the limited timeframe of 24 hours on. Each edition is available for 24 hours only, then never again.

The editions are numbered randomly; the edition number is not chronologically assigned to the time of order receipt. All 24-HOUR EDITION DROP prints are made to order. Each artwork is produced and personalized specifically for each client. The artwork, therefore, is not eligible for return.

This edition will be exclusively available on misa.art and artsy.net.
