An expert colourist, MABO has embraced modernism with his own original mixture of stylistic motifs.
Roundness and bulk are suggested by variations in colour intensity. The combination of active contours, depth and brightly coloured areas gives a surging rhythm to the art of MABO. He has a strong affinity for coherent two-dimensional patterns with an emphasis on spatial interaction. MABO is proficient in various media. His painted furniture is explosive and Bauhaus-influenced and can summon up images, which are Pre-Columbian or evocative of Juan Gris and Picasso.
Personally, MABO is serene and contemplative with a very good sense of humour. He is a well traveled man whose achievements include household murals and large-scale commercial decors e.g. an entire restaurant done in Thai-style, involving carving, painting, stencil-work and fabric.
Canadian Artist Paul Gosen
Much like Picasso and Cézanne, MABO produces very influential works of art. His artwork is rich in colour and forms. MABO uses interpretive paths by invoking social and cultural understandings. He creates impact with the use of colour and forms; this is the essence of keeping his artwork simple. There are two reasons why it is important to bring attention to his artwork. First, the greatest challenge to an artist is colour; MABO's artwork may be highly illuminated with colour. Second, MABO achieves clarity and simplicity. Moreover, people are drawn to this way of simplicity. MABO seeks interpretive clues in his artwork and all sorts of communicative interaction.

You have given me inspiration. Maybe even a deeper love for what I’m trying to do. I’m taking your direction into my life....wandering...experimenting with all that you have shown us. Letting go is a beautiful gift. I am somewhat a beginner thinking it all has to be perfect. You have given me license to go where my heart and eye leads me...and making me feel I can do this...try this...learn on my own terms. I have flipped open the flaps of my box..breathing some free air and crawling out with all my brushes..stencils..paints..pallet knife...whatever I can get my hands on...thank you thank you MABO!!
I am so happy! I received the paintings yesterday and was thrilled. Soon I want another painting. I’ve already decided what I want. I absolute have fell in love with your art. Thank you so very much for being so kind.

I had to laugh when I saw the painting and video. It’s exactly what I wanted. I knew you could do the painting I had in mind. Please send the frog and the two other paintings when you have time. Thank you so very much. I will be ordering other paintings in the future. Thank you again for all the beautiful paintings you have done for me. I wish you and your family well and all the happiness in the world.
My oldest son got his degree in Art and he told me your paintings are really great. I sent him a picture of the painting from you and he loved it. I’m so blessed. I’m waiting on my matted frame and can’t wait to display this beautiful painting. I will send you a picture when it is displayed. You are an unbelievable artist. I love your work. Thank you for being so sweet.
Thank you, I love it! You did a beautiful job. I really appreciate the painting!
No kidding, I’m running out of wall space, but I keep seeing your fabulous paintings and can’t resist ordering. I’m hoping this is my last order, but who knows. My house is filled with your wonderful paintings. Like I said, you’re my favorite artist! I probably saw this painting too late to get it mailed with my other order. Sorry. I really would like to have saved the shipping cost.
.......and so many more
