Dot Com, Kok

The photo that inspired the drawing was taken during a sunset in Phnom Penh, which one can feel through the color on her face.
With a 1970 comics style, the black dots build the structure of her face and stand in opposition with the red color of the background.
The sharp solid swath of red is the representation of the city. The smooth, soft, face’s color contrasts with the aggressive tone of the truculent and defiant city feeling.

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.
