Matthieu Koga aka Kogaone
Le site de HKWALLS
Matthieu Koga, aka Kogaone, is a French artist, based in Metz. Specialized in large walls, it has left its
mark in Europe and even beyond in cities like Paris, Dublin, Eidhovenor, Sarajevo... His works touch the viewer’s spirit with their
dark irony, varied palettes and unusual or even disturbing combinations. He explores the alteration, the paradox, the embarrassment
that arise when the familiar is deformed or fractured by external influences. He de natures a scene of life and portraits, moves or
distorts fragments, or combines/opposes photorealism to a more free and expressionist painting. He plays with the notion of realism
that he distends to abstraction. It is a way of discovering and accepting the singular beauty that is revealed in hesitation,unfinished
