Kokian, a French artist born in 1971, is a worthy heir of the Neo-expressionist inspiration of "Bad Painting", exemplified by Basquiat. After having spent his early childhood in Burma (2 years) and Morocco (4 years), Kokian and his family moved back to France and settled in the Paris region.

Following a period of graffiti and tags on the street of Paris, he moved to New York in 1995 where he found his own style, off beat, funny and disturbing, much like Art Brut. Since then, his colorful paintings with graffiti and interrogative slogans about society's many injustices, have gained attention by the contemporary art critics.

Up until 2005, Kokian participated in numerous informal expositions around the world. Due to his provocative style, the medias started to pay more attention to him, dedicating more and more airtime to portraying him. Now, Kokian's urban expressionism is well recognized and can be found in numerous international collections.
