Ep. 97: Kohshin Finley is a multiracial, Afro-Latino, Black & Mexican painter whose work will take your breath away. 

Just as a songwriter tells stories through rhythm and melody, Kohshin tells his stories with brushes and paint. The subjects of these paintings are captured in a vulnerable state of being, at their most honest and revealing. Poems and short tales are written in diaristic scrawls throughout the paintings as if the characters wrote them. Kohshin creates paintings in this way to showcase his own vulnerabilities, and to give the viewer permission to discover something about themselves when viewing his paintings. Kohshin utilizes traditional oil painting techniques and contemporary text-based imagery to communicate a character’s emotional travels; where they were; where they are; and where they will be.

Kohshin currently is in Los Angeles, CA.  He received a BFA from Otis College of Art and Design.
