Artist Biography

Ghislain Brown-Kossi is an abstract painter currently living and working in Vancouver, Canada. After several years working in fashion for a French luxury brand, as a stylist for fashion magazines, and as a costumer for cinema, he dedicated himself to art full-time in 2021.

Ghislain Brown-Kossi is developing an artistic practice that he describes as "archaeological pop art." Through the use of ancient symbols steeped in our contemporary societies, which he combines with pop colors and abstract forms, the artist questions the links between different cultures. He seeks to convey a message of unity and solidarity, inspiring the viewer to understand and experience other cultures, and to reach out to others.

Ghislain Brown-Kossi stages symbols with clean lines and diverse origins such as traditional African symbols and ancient hieroglyphics. He explores archaeological sites to update our understanding of these civilizations—whose symbols are omnipresent in contemporary culture—and to remind our societies of their most ancient origins.
Brown-Kossi's work has been shown in the U.S., Canada, Ivory Coast, and U.K. His artworks are in private collections around the world. He recently had a work selected as part of the Art in Embassies program, an office within the U.S. Department of State that promotes cultural diplomacy through exhibitions and permanent collections.

Brown-Kossi has been represented by Jennifer Kostuik Gallery since 2021.
