In love with mystery and beauty in the broadest sense, Koonib creates contemporary pop still lifes that conceal a symbolic, enigmatic story or personal memory.
He draws his inspiration mainly from feminine beauty, celebration, freedom, eroticism and nostalgia. He likes his paintings to be as striking as they are intriguing, and that each time you can immerse yourself a little more in their subtle details.
Each setting is created from scratch, with passion and meticulousness. He tries to use digital retouching only in terms of contrast and brightness. Koonib sets his decors in an electric midnight blue that very quickly imposed itself on him intuitively. He has made it his signature. Light as well as dark, it gives him infinite creative freedom. An ideal colour that contrasts perfectly with fluorescent colours such as pink, which he uses regularly.
Finally, the square format and small workspace force him to refocus his thoughts and channel an overflowing imagination. Koonib thus focuses his attention on simple details represented by objects that he assembles to form unusual, atypical and offbeat scenes of life.
