ACEO Clown Portrait #110 "Clown Bobbo"

Clown #110 "Clown Bobbo" 
acrylic on paper,  
2 ½” x 3 ½” (64 x 89 mm), 2019

ACEO Clown Portrait #110 is inspired by very sweet and funny circus clown "Clown Bobbo" from England. He has being clowning since 5 years old and coming from a very old circus family. He'll be celebrating his 33th year of clowning in this September. His clown look is referred to by some as European style auguste. Bobbo calls himself as "Bobbo Roberts Professional Fool" on his facebook page. He is a member of The Grand Order of the Water Rats, this is an organisation for entertainers and people related to showbiz. Bobbo is married and he has two sons. I had the privileged to meet him on an online chat and he was so kind to give me information about his clowning career. Hope to see his show one day.
