About

KOKO BETWEEN TWO WORLDS: ART AND ARCHITECTURE KOKO is an international artist and architectural designer. He holds a Masters in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University in New York. His design experience includes 6 years with world renowned architect Frank Gehry. It was during these years with Frank that KOKO also developed his artistic language as a painter; finding passion between his two worlds: art and architecture. From an early age KOKO was drawn to abstract art. His mother was a fashion designer and father a culinary chef. Growing up in a household that embraced and cultivated artistic expression; KOKO began painting. His fascination with form and composition lead to his education in architecture. His background in design impacted his paintings that forever changed the course of his work. There is an identifiable vernacular in his painting that is clearly his own; KOKO’s signature style of painting. The paintings have vivid colors, strong brushstrokes and the soft touch of the human figures from his subjects. His paintings resonate with collectors seeking contemporary art of conceptual character, deep expression and resonance to the soul. KOKO’s collections have been exhibited at many high profile showcases. Since his return to Los Angeles from New York, KOKO debuted a series of highly acclaimed oil painting collections that have since been exhibited locally and abroad. His experience includes both group and solo exhibitions as well as public and private commissions. In 2012, he was a featured artist for the SoulPancake network in association with YouTube and the Oprah Winfrey Network. A time-lapse film accompanied with an interview captured KOKO painting in his studio. For the first time viewers were able to see him at work. Thousands of views poured into the network and the national response was substantial. In 2016 KOKO’s paintings were featured on Bravo’s ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’. During filming at 10e Restaurant in Downtown LA all his artwork was showcased in the space in the episode. In 2014 he also designed a unique, one-of-a-kind, surfboard for the Architecture and Design (A+D) Museum in Los Angeles for their exhibition ‘Groundswell”: A look into California surf culture. He has collaborated with numerous architects, musicians and artists in collective shows as well. In 2012, during a venture with the Walt Disney Concert Hall, KOKO participated in the production design of the opera ‘Don Giovanni’ with couture fashion duo Rodarte, composer Dudamel and architect Frank Gehry. Whether painting in his studio or collaborating with larger design teams, KOKO is always developing new and exciting work for his collectors and viewing audiences. He continues to push the boundaries of his work and always seeks innovative ideas to develop his work.
