Roy Kohn is a multidisciplinary artist primarily working in various painting and drawing media. Over time he has incorporated video, installation, writing and performance to his work in order to explore ephemeral concepts selecting and utilizing media to suit specific projects.

Since 2006 Kohn has been making collaborative projects with Kate Vasyliw, as WeSee Inc.: a two person art collective. The work is themed around belief systems and societal oddities created within the realms of popular media, superstitions, religion and politics. WeSee Inc. often presents their work in non-traditional venues chosen to reflect the practicalities of each project.

Kohn is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art (now OCAD University), with post-graduate studio work at the Akademie van Beeldende Kunst (Academy of Fine Art) in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. He was one of three selected for the inception year in a program for international students.

His (and WeSee Inc’s) videos have been official selections in the Coney Island Film
Festival as well as the Washington DC Independent Film Festival. The large-scale work, The Meeky Project was an official selection during Toronto’s Nuit Blanche 2008. He is a recipient of public and private grants for artists.

Roy Kohn, along with Kate Vasyliw were co-founders and co-curators of Roadside
Attractions, a storefront art project space in Toronto from 2007 to 2017.

Recently relocating from rural Nova Scotia, Kohn now makes Hamilton his home.
