Welcoming KOGA ONE to Moniker Editions!
Kogaone is a French artist based in Metz, France. His works touch the viewer’s spirit with their dark irony, varied palettes and unusual or even disturbing combinations, in a style between geometric abstraction and photorealism. Attentive observer of his contemporaries and their often contradictory natures, he explores the alteration, the paradox, the embarrassment that arise when the familiar is deformed or fractured by external influences.
For this work, Silhouette, the artist has taken the subject from the exploring the web. He enjoys taking pictures of strangers, and distorting them until the model looses all resemeblance to the photo or the original human. He deconstructs these strangers into works of art using acrylic, spray and oil paint. His works and characters taking on a new life of their own.
Koga One denatures a scene of life, moves or distorts fragments, or combines / opposes photorealism to a freer and expressionist painting. He plays with the notion of realism that he distends to abstraction. These contrasting ideas are then fixed, under the brush, in a transcendental and definitive visual unit. It is a way of discovering and accepting the singular beauty that is revealed in hesitation, unfinished and imperfection.
