About the artist ︎︎︎

Nichola Koshkosh (b.1995, Mariupol, Ukraine) is a multimedia artist based in Moscow who has quickly become one of the most visible faces of the ‘modern Russia’- arguably one of Russia’s best kept secrets - bridging with easiness between not only East and West, but also Then and Now.

Koshkosh isn’t just a painter, and his practice spans a variety of media: graffiti, contemporary tattooing, publishing, photography, and he’s also planning to make projects involving music. He’s a bridge builder between different categories.

He has exhibited in Moscow and Copenhagen, with exhibitions and projects such as ‘High Note’ at Gallery Zdes na Taganke, ‘11.11’ at the hybrid space Richter, ‘Red Squre’ at the Contemporary Art Museum Art4, and ’Visit Copenhagen’ organized by curator and collector Jens-Peter Brask.

His works have been published by Vogue Russia, L’Officiel Russia, Office Magazine (US), La Repubblica (IT), TTTism magazine (UK), Brask Studio Visits (DK), KALTBLUT Magazine (DE), INRUSSIA (RU).


”Abstract yet simple, his paintings are distinct in their unruliness - Orthodox imagery blurs with cartoons of his friends boxing, agricultural equipment and The North Face. They look like the result of Ivan Aivazovsky and Robert Rauschenberg, as commissioned by the ATL Twins.”  — Art of War, Office magazine, September 2018
