Koak is a visual artist whose work employs the figure to create a narrative language driven by
emotion. Drawing on the visual vocabulary of comics, Koak explores themes of domesticity, feminism,
gender, and the human condition, utilizing graphic imagery to communicate with the viewer though a
range of media that includes painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation. Recent solo exhibitions include
Union Pacific in London and Ghebaly Gallery in Los Angeles, CA. Koak’s work was included in select
group shows at Et al. in San Francisco, CA, Laura Bartlett in London, and The Museum of Sex in New
York, NY. She holds an MFA in Comics and BFA in Fine Arts from the California College of the Arts.
Koak currently resides in San Francisco, where she is working towards her first solo show with Altman
Siegel and will be included in a forthcoming survey on feminism at the Berkeley Museum of Art in
Berkeley, CA.
