Iam Cohelo (b. Lausanne, Switzerland)
I was born in Lausanne, Switzerland. Shortly after I did superior school in Europe, where I did my first class of drawing, I went to Chaffey College in US and then back again in Europe where I studied psychosociology and did an international marketing Master in Spain. I followed different drawing / painting classes in Europe and in USA but always free classes, these are, in my point of view, the best for learning as you meet people with different needs, ideas and visions. And to be honest I do prefer not being locked into a given framework, I really need freedom and to give free rein to my thoughts, my desires. People can be lost with my paintings as I often jump from one style to another. This may be true if you seek a logic or rather identical style.
Some of my paintings are abroad in private collections and some others are loaned to offices.
I am currently following classes at OCA which is an Open College of arts and will start a new class near Montreux in Switzerland.
Iam Cohelo is offering a wide variety of originals for sale in the ArtSlant Salesroom (here).
