Born in Ivory Coast in 1994, Josue Comoe, came to France when he was 7, lives and works in the Paris metropolitan area. At the age of 16, he started to model for luxury brands such as Chanel. He subsequently trained in photography at the prestigious Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs (National School of Decorative Arts) in Paris. However, it was through painting and drawing, then practiced as an autodidact, that he decided to mostly express himself.
Reaching for transcendence, Josue portrays the souls and the complexity of our beings with his own codes. Josue Comoe makes up his own pieces as pictures, impressive portraits, up front paintings built from this dark light from where emerges shapes. Combining economy of means and refinement, he is willing to show faces with powerful graphic, where the black ink of the ballpoint pen creates an abyssal depth in the surface drawn, simultaneously of a rhythm and a vibration.
