Koos Van der Wat is a Multi-Disciplinary Artist from Johannesburg, South Africa. His mediums include Painting, Drawing, Music and Performance Art, as well as the usage of technological tools such as Google Earth, Maya and Artificial Intelligence. His work generally blends futurism and pop culture while often integrating architectural and urbanist concepts.

Kossy World encompasses his vision for a parallel world paradigm, complete with its own corporate hierarchies, religions and cultural nuances. Through the process​ of painting, many of the symbols and structures arise that inform the vision and lexicon of the Kossy World mythos.

Musically his discography spans multiple genres, but he is best known as a rock guitarist.  He has collaborated with many Artists and exhibited at some well known galleries.
