Hey there Bubbly!


‘I have painted the human body into every imaginable environment or concept. Like all my work, this series is simply about pushing the boundaries of the imagination and challenging myself as an artist to grow and explore.

‘Foods and beverages seemed like the perfect avenue to explore. As long as I am alive I will always keep pushing and exploring the imagination.

“For this series I use a combination of image elements put together to create the final image. Such elements include the human body, food or drink preparation and props such as the celery headpiece of the Bloody Mary cocktail or the cherries in the ice cream pictures.” Indeed a lot goes into churning out a single image of Ioco’s. Watch this video to find out how he really does it.


For Ioko the excitement of seeing the image come to life trumps any patience required. And he just want to create powerful images that excite and open ones imagination to a world of wonder.

Well he has succeeded beautifully in doing just that!
