Biography

Kogaone is a multi-media and multi-technique painter from Metz. Self-taught pictorial, he holds a BTS in graphic design. He chose this school path to immerse himself in a modern professional culture, develop his analytical mind and stimulate his creativity.

He enriched this trajectory with personal research on so-called classical painting. He worked for several years, parallel to his pictorial leisure activity, as a graphic designer in one of the largest companies in Luxembourg, before embarking totally and passionately in the profession of painter.

KogaOne's works mark the viewer's spirit with their dark irony, varied palettes and unusual and even disturbing combinations. His work is as well inspired by the works of masters as by the human condition inscribed in the codes of his time. An attentive observer of his contemporaries and their often contradictory natures, he explores the alteration, the paradox, the embarrassment, which arise when the familiar is deformed or fractured by external influences.

It distorts a scene of life, moves or distorts fragments, or combines / opposes photorealism to a more raw 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, imperfection.

The work of KogaOne, with the filter of its own sensitivity, constitutes a deviant and syncretic representation of the physical world assaulted by the field of emotion.

In early 2018, KogaOne signed a collaboration as a permanent artist in the Urban Gallery in Uzès (30700) and the Artefact Gallery in Metz (57000).
