Born in: 1977


Exploring the emotional other side of illustrations for children, Koharutie transgresses the codes of a genre to invent a new one: Emo-Pop Art, or the art of giving shape to one’s anguish from images made to express any other feeling. Mixing the most fecund naiveté and the strictest introspection, the works thus created represent the paradoxes of our time.

This is why children do not live exactly in the same world as adults, but rather in an erotic space where dreams mingle with reality without clearly differentiating the two terms. This, without a doubt, is the reason why the drawings of Koharutie not only show the image of a little girl with a bruised heart, but also the struggle of innocence fighting against nightmares through which is penetrating, little by little, the horror of adulthood.
