Juan Bobo the Tortured Painter

Juan Bobo is developing a new, disturbing talent. He was a child prodigy in Caguas Puerto Rico. His early portraits of Toño Bicicleta and other serial killers, won him worldwide recognition.

Subsequently, Juan specialized in family portraits such as the much-beloved Cocolo de Caguas.

For a while, he drew landscapes of old San Juan and other Puerto Rican towns.

In the last month however, Bobo’s work has become tortured.

He now paints lizards, rats, snakes and roaches.

He also paints endless labyrinths of Kafkaesque despair, with empty figures walking nowhere, for all eternity.

All of this suggests, that Bobo should take a break from politics.

Maybe take a boys’ night out.


A man of Bobo’s genius should not always be suffering.

    Juan Bobo needs a MacArthur grant. Maybe a few bucks will relieve his existential angst.
