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, drama and writing. She also participated in other activities such as music, dance and gymnastics.
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, decided to study Architectural Technology at the University of Westminster in London. After graduating from the University in 2008, 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 regularly building new bodies of work from her home studio in London.
Although, she works from London for most part of the year, she travels around the world working and studying alongside other talented artists, exploring new ideas and techniques. She exhibits her work at galleries in London and occasionally works on commissions from both private collectors and corporate clients.
