In his work he uses a myriad tools and techniques and media such as
photos, layers textures
I selected Viktor Koen as my Digital Artist since I thought his art was unique in
that it used a variety of objects , individuals, fictional characters and photos
Medusa Minotaur and fused or integrated them into objects that are recognizable and
interesting art pieces.
Koens web site highlights several exhibitions of which I think two are most
interesting and highlight his style and influence his approach.

His Bestiary exhibition merges or integrates Greek mythology creatures

with contemporary life forms or physical objects to form a hybrid creature
which can be viewed a a monster or object.
His Toyphabet exhibition also focuses on integration but brings fusion into
the equation. Everyday objects are transformed to form letters of the
Source materials are integrated
The focus in Mr Koens work is the photographic compositing of paint, charts,
diagrams and amazing examples of drastically different source materials
integrated into a cohesive composition within Photoshop. 1
