Viktor Koen

Exoskeleton

Viktor Koen: paintings, digital collages, photomontage, prints and a great portfolio with many magazine covers.

Koen’s creatures are created by manipulating vintage photographs, depicting upper-class males and fusing them with various monstrous or mechanical insects that bring to mind the surreal photomontages of Raoul Housman or Hannah Hoch from the 20’s and 30’s. The knowledge and application of these prototypes of mature modernism along with the use of contemporary scientific-mythology, render his work scholarly and multilayered.
