Greetings, my name is Koos Van der Wat and I am a multi-media Artist from Johannesburg, South Africa.  

My paintings are a fusion of Pop Art, Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism wrapped in a Futurist ethos. Through the process of painting, many of the symbols and structures arise that inform the vision of Kossy World.
Kossy World is the conceptual culmination of my aim to introduce an alternate paradigm to this planet, filled with a new set of cultures and attractions. 

I have collaborated and exhibited with many Artists and in 2018 I attended the Chateau Orquevaux Residency in France. I've also appeared in multiple international commercials 
and designed the logo for the popular US alternate music channel, 
Artzie Music. As a guitarist, I've played and recorded with multiple projects whilst also producing most of the album art.    

If you are interested to arrange an exhibition, commission or residency, please get in contact
