Kevin Scott Cosme is a creative specialist born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. His artistic journey began in elementary school with graffiti black books that were passed around to neighborhood street artists trying to outshine each other from spread to spread. Honing his skills with spray paint and an airbrush, he then began creating murals, t-shirts and other various artworks for local homeowners and businesses who all recommended he take his skill set to the next level through proper training. In 1995, Kevin enrolled in SUNY Purchase’s BFA program and graduated in ’99 with a degree in Graphic Design.
As Senior Art Director by his mid 20’s for a SoHo based ad agency, he created the materials for big brands like Sony and Cisco but would include illustrations and creative pieces that matched his aesthetic and were enthusiastically embraced by the brands. In his freelance work, companies like Auto Zone, BMW, and Def Jam were so impressed by his style and vision they would often redirect their creative thinking to match his ideas and directions. Although he found success in advertising, Kevin would always find himself going back to his first passion – painting.
His most recent figurative pieces are inspired by the women in his life who he describes as strong, fierce women who have always faced adversity and hardships head-on with confidence and unmatched poise. Working with a variety of mediums as acrylics, spray paints, oil sticks and pencils, his work is active, vibrant, and rich. “I strive to create pieces that everyone can relate to. I want them to pop and feel like my neighborhood walls.”
