Kokil is a London based artist who started her training at a very young age. She grew up in India and spent a few years at a boarding school outside of her home state, in the region of Doon Valley at the foothills of the Himalayas in India. She believes that her time and experience here, shaped and enhanced her creative practice and set a strong foundation for her future projects and endeavours.
During her time there, she participated and won numerous awards and competitions in art as well as other activities such as gymnastics, music, drama and writing. Her initial art training was mainly focussed on facial anatomy and figurative art, however, as a teenager, she felt passionate towards Architecture and the built environment, therefore, studied Architectural Technology at the University of Westminster, London in 2008. After University, she worked on many Architectural projects in the Education, Retail and Housing sector in the U.K. while developing her own studio practice on the side. She is now a full-time artist, focusing on her practice and building new body of work from her home studio in London.
Although she now works from her studio in London for most part of the year, she has recently been spending some time in Southern California working and studying alongside other talented artists, exploring new ideas and territories. She has exhibited her work mainly in London and occasionally works on commissions from both private collectors and corporate clients.
