Kristin Kossi is a Germany based contemporary artist. She began drawing and painting from a very early age, at the same time she also became inspired in fashion and graduated later at the Academy of Fashion Design in Hamburg, Germany. She then ascertained a great deal of experience in fashion, photography and multimedia, all of which have paved the path for her later artistic endeavour. 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. Producing 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 create unique compositions, that inspire, provoke and delight. Kristin Kossi has been featured in German and British publications and TV as an artist to watch. Her works are currently in private collections across Europe, Australia and the USA.


Alternating between modern art and pop cultures, I create paintings working directly and urgently in response to my social environment. My approach as a fine artist is to draw on the power of mass media and pop culture, while repurposing its icons, imagery and techniques to deliver a more personal artistic statement. Through the use of meaningful juxtaposition and social commentary, my work is an exploration of the irony, contradiction, parallels and harmony to be found in todays life. My favorite mediums are acrylic, oil sticks, resin and vintage comics. Whenever I create a piece of art my intention is to visually stimulate the observer to look deeper through the layers, to motivate and to bring joy. My creative process is straight forward, unmistakable, and direct. I am here to make a statement, to be a force, and to entice the viewer to think, to feel, and to be here and now. And I hope that every piece of art that you discover here enhances your life the way that they’ve enhanced mine.
