English painter. Cohen moved to Paris after completing his studies in London at St Martin's School of Art and the Slade School of Fine Art. As from the beginning of the 60s, Cohen began painting in a deliberately discrepant style. In the mid 70s, he replaced his early preferences with a meticulous technique of applying denser patterns and motifs. In these pieces, Cohen discovered the means of communicating his obsession for the techniques of painting, producing art which is as complex in terms of form as in its metaphorical implications.
