Hobos made hobo art to sell to make their way and for food. Hobo where always willing to work for the way!
Throughout the history of the Hoboes there have been many who, without a doubt, have to be referred to as artists and even gifted. Although, for many years, Hoboes have been looked down on by many people no one can dispute that the following pictures display real artistic talent. More famous hobo art are the nickles. Type in google Hobo nickles and see all the artwork.
You’ll also find door knockers, cups, carving, boxes, and even paintings all done by hobos just trying to make their way in the world.
