The maiden in the lift, Kok
Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
The result was an over-lit photo with an overexposed top of the model’s head, which the artist found interesting as he researched different techniques.
KOK is always using his own photographs of models as a working base for his paintings. The original picture was taken in an elevator, with a harsh, bright, white light coming from the top.
ពន្លឺរៀងស្លេកៗ ចាំងពីលើក្បាលរបស់នាង។ រូបភាពមុខ គឺជារូបដែលសម្លឹងមើលអ្នក ជាជាងអ្នកសម្លឹងមើលវា។
KOK តែងតែប្រើរូបថតរបស់ម៉ូឌែលដែលគាត់ ផ្ទាល់ដៃដើម្បីយកមកធ្វើជាគំនូររបស់គាត់។ រូបថតដើមគឺថតនៅក្នុងជណ្ដើរយន្ត, ជាមួយពន្លឺចាំងខ្លាំង និងពន្លឺភ្លើងពណ៍សចាំងចំពីលើ។
About the artist:
Coming from the 80s and 90s punk rock scene, KOK is a musician and cartoonist trained at the Beaux-arts de Bordeaux and Les Arts Appliqués de la Gironde.
The all-digital nature of comics no longer allowed him to sell originals, so KOK returned to painting in2006 and started with a “comic-style”, followed by a conceptual and modern approach to portraiture influenced by female issues and women’s rights.
He has exhibited in France and internationally, most recently at the Institut Francais of Bangkok, Thailand.
