Kohl King was born in Bangalore, India and immigrated to the United States at an early age. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting from the University of Georgia, a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Arizona and studied Conceptual and Installation Art at The Cooper Union School, New York.
Her work is drawn from psychology---primarily understanding and resolving relational natures. By combining non-traditional but symbolic materials she creates situations where relationships between the various elements can either co-exist independently, symbiotically, parasitically or at times, reflect their determined conflicting states. For her, the work is a direct interpretation of how she navigates, internally and externally, in the world. She does not believe in randomness and is a big fan of the maths and sciences as further validation of the spiritual.Email
