Papo Colo (b.1946) is a Puerto Rican multi-dimensional artists. His work ranges from performance, theater, instillation art along with painting, writing and graphic design. In 1977 he performed Superman 51 on the Westside Highway in NYC. In this piece Colo attaches long objects with ropes to his body that he then drags along as he makes his way across the Westside Highway. Superman 51 is a prime example of Modern Art in NYC due to its experimental use of video art and performance.
