KOKO KING b. 1988, OTTAWA, ONTARIO

IS A MULTI-CREATIVE, WHOES PRACTICES HAVE SPANNED THE FINE ARTS AS WELL AS THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY. NOW MARRYING HER CREATIVE FIELDS TO OFFER IN STUDIO MAKE UP, SET DESIGN, AND PHOTOGRAPHY, KOKO'S UNIQUE AND ALL ENCOMPASSING  APPROACH TO PHOTOGRAPHY SETS ALLOWS FOR A COHESIVE VISION, WHERE MAKE-UP ARTIST, HAIR STYLIST, SET DESIGNER, EDITOR, AND PHOTOGRAPHER ARE ONE

KOKO'S PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY STARTED AT A YOUNG AGE- RAISED BY TWO ARTIST PARENTS, HER CHILDHOOD HOME WAS LADEN WITH ART FROM VARIOUS ARTISTS SPANNING MANY GENRES- INCLUDING THE FINE  PHOTOGRAPHY OF HERB RITTS- WHOES ARTISTIC INFLUENCE ON THE DEVELOPMENTAL YEARS IS EVIDENT IN KING'S OWN WORK WHICH ILLUSTRATES THE BEAUTY OF HUMAN FORM THROUGH DYNAMIC EXPRESSION. EAGER TO NURTURE HER OWN CREATIVITY, KING'S PARENTS EQUIPPED HER WITH AN ARSENAL OF ARTISTIC TOOLS- DRAWN TO THE CAMERA, KING BEGAN TO FOSTER HER PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY AT THE AGE OF SEVEN.

GROWING UP ON A SMALL HOBBY FARM IN THE FRENCH-COUNTRYSIDE, HER EARLIEST MUSE WAS EQUESTRIAN IN NATURE. BY THE AGE OF TEN SHE HAD AMASSED ROLLS UPON ROLLS OF FILM- PORTRAITS OF HORSES IN MOTION, STILL LIFES OF THEIR SURROUNDINGS. AS KING GREW, AND LEFT HER COUNTRY HOME FOR THE CITY, SHE FOUND HERSELF DRAWN TO NEW CREATIVE FIELDS. ORGANICALLY SHE LANDED IN THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY- RECOGNIZED FOR HER KEEN EYE FOR DETAIL, AND MASTERFUL APPLICATIONS FOR HAIR, MAKE-UP, AND MICROPIGMENTATION. HER UNDERSTANDING OF THE HUMAN FIGURE- HAVING BEEN EXPOSED TO IT FROM SUCH A YOUNG AGE, MADE HER UNIQUELY ADEPT AT STAGE DIRECTION AND POSING FOR BODY BUILDING COMPETITORS. SHE RAPIDLY CLIMBED TO THE TOP IN HER FIELD, GARNERING ACCOLADES IN EVERY CREATIVE ARENA SHE STEPPED INTO. BUT LIKE ANY TRUE CREATIVE, KING'S PASSION FOR ART COULD NOT BE COMPRESSED AND RESTRAINED BY THESE FIELDS ALONE. HER PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY, CAME BACK WITH A FERVOUR. WITH A NEW INTENTION TO CAPTURE THE HUMAN SUBJECT IN NEW LIGHT. AFTER YEARS OF FOCUSING ON ENHANCING THE PHYSICAL IN REALITY, SHE NOW WISHES TO SHOWCASE A DEEPER METAPHYSICAL NARRATIVE THROUGH THE ART OF FORM PHOTOGRAPHY. UTILIZING THE HUMAN CANVAS TO CREATE DREAM-LIKE IMAGES THAT TRANSPORT THE VIEWER PAST WHAT WE RECOGNIZE AS THE STANDARD FOR THIS SUBJECT IN PHOTOGRAPHY. BRINGING A LITTLE EDGE TO EVERY PHOTOSHOOT, KING HOPES TO OPEN THE PUBLIC UP TO NEW INTERPRETATIONS, AND TO VIEW THE HUMAN SUBJECT IN NEW LIGHT.
