The Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization who's mission is to increase public knowledge and appreciation for contemporary fine arts and fine crafts by creating opportunities that connect artists, the Ann Arbor community and the general public to their mutual benefit, including a top quality juried street art fair.
Debo is formally trained as a ceramic artist with a MFA from the University of Georgia. After many years of making pots, she reinvented herself as a self-taught polymer clay artist using colorful and patterned sheets of polymer clay like fabric collage. The clay is paper thin and tactile. In her pieces the subject matter is clay and the background is textured acrylic paint. Debo melds these two mediums in a way that forces the viewer to closely engage with the work in order to distinguish between the two materials. Using backyard creatures to tell the stories, the beauty of this work is in its magnificent use of uncontrolled color.
