Right in the sun, KOK
Medium: Black Chinese ink on drawing paper

As the title suggests, the model is “right in the sun”.
KOK captured the momentum when the sun waves impacted every part (dots) on her face, like an invisible sun facial mask.

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 in 2006 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.
