Bojesen Bo

Copenhagen, Denmark

Cartoonist, artist

Danish artist born in Aabenraa, Denmark, on March 22, 1923. As the permanent satirical cartoonist at the Copenhagen daily Politiken for almost thirty years. Bo Bojesen has established himself as Denmark’s number one caricaturist, considered among the world elite of satirical artists. His line is clean, his caricatures accurate and incomparably funny. Each year he draws three to four panels a week as commentaries on the politics, happenings and whims of the day. His captions are as hard-hitting as his drawing style. Every year a collection of that year’s best Do Bojesen drawings is published. He is also an active book illustrator.
