1980
After studying Ethnology at the University of Toulouse, is accepted into the prestigious Beaux-Arts School in Paris yet soon decides to seize an opportunity to live in Miami where he works for Teen Magazine as Art Director. He holds the first public exhibition of his paintings there, before travelling the world for inspiration: New York, London, Prague, Madrid, Bombay...

1990

2000
Challenged by the Industry to apply his Art to manufactured luxury objects, such as jewellery, sculpted rugs, cement tiles, cigar humidors, wine bottles, fashion apparels and cars... these objects become part of the Sokazo World and are shown together with paintings in travelling exhibitions.

Settles in British Columbia in 2005 where he found new inspiration, light and energy.

"Explosive paintings!"
Robert Villenave
Mayor of the City of Anglet (France)

"Generous artworks, saturated with overpowering colors where grow geometric forms, waves, circles and ethnic signs. Abstraction that hits the retina. Seduction is immediate."
Anne Tautou
Art Critic

"Philippe Sokazo's work particularly strikes me by the opulence of multiple effects opposed to a remarkable apparent simplicity in the making and in the iconic organization of forms..."
Denis Milhau
Chief-Curator of the French Patrimony
and Professor of Art History at the Ecole du Louvre (Paris)

Appointed member of honor by the city of Toulouse (France).Philippe Sokazo's Art can be found in public and private collections in the USA, Canada, Spain, Andorra, France, UK and Japan.

Philippe..Thank you for the wonderful pictures. What an amazingly talented guy you are! I Googled you and found examples of your paintings - absolutely wonderful.
