Tom Cocotos

$1,500.00

Tom Cocotos is a collage artist with a studio in New York. Residencies and one-person exhibitions have brought him to Berlin, Buenos Aires, Lisbon, Athens, Los Angeles and Miami. Cocotos has lectured at the School of Visual Arts, Parsons, Fashion Institute of Technology, Ringling College, Oolite Arts, and PANAL 361. His work has been commissioned and is held by Citibank, Ford Motors, American Airlines, Miami Children’s Museum, Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art, among others. His images have appeared in the New York Times, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated and Playboy. He holds an MFA from the School of Visual Arts, and an undergraduate degree in Engineering from Columbia University.

Cocotos is presently working on a series called “Ambiguities of Power.” These larger-than-life collages combine compositional elements from master paintings… including those by Caravaggio, Velazquez and Bellini. The images scrutinize to reveal the way power structures rotate on axis, wherein the oppressed often become the oppressors.
