Boris Hoppek was born in Kreuztal, Germany in 1970. He wanted to study art but wasn‘t accepted at art school. In the early nineties he started to graffiti the streets and his art has continued developing ever since. His first Bimbo doll appeared in 2002 and, thanks to an advert from the german car manufacturer Opel, his audience multiplied incalculably overnight. Bimbo dolls are made by hand from a range of materials; cloth, corduroy, rubber, fake leather, and they represent the social issues of our time.
