    Brian Kokoska (10) has recently released his first book project titled Chiclet Teeth, which is currently featured in V Magazine.

    Limited to an edition of 150, the paperback book features 32 pages of abstract, digital, hypercolor mutations based upon his illusory, character-driven paintings. “The overall tone of the book could be described as ritualistic underground sex club meets cut and paste hard-edge abstraction,” notes Brian, recently visited in his studio by Marcel Castenmiller for VMAN Magazine.

    Individually signed and numbered by Kokoska, remaining books are available at http://www.briankokoska.com.
