Since 2011 she continued working solely as an artist. Kristin Kossi draws inspiration from her urban surroundings like street art, fashion and social media in the production of her unique art pieces.The creative skills and knowledge that she has gained from her past experience are quiet integral to her aesthetic process. Recent series of large scale portraits is showing the brutal expression of pure beauty which became increasingly complex, paradoxical and intense. For her, the series is not just the beautiful surface, it is more about expressive energy, about turning the inside out and the articulation of an emotional journey of self-exploration and discovery. Besides working on her large scale portrait paintings, she also enjoys producing pop art which allow her to be very experimental by using everything from graffiti stencils, spray paint to newspaper collage, markers, oil, acrylic and resin. The artist intensely combines color, vibrancy, and a generous dose of humor to produce urban art that inspires, provokes and delights.
