Mark Kochen

Sioux City artist Mark Kochen often refers to himself as the “Fuzzy Blue Monster.” Kochen earned a BFA from Iowa State University’s College of Design in drawing and painting. Although he’s been creative all his life and instinctively took to making artwork from a young age, he feels that he is still constantly developing his craft; as he says, he is “increasing the intricacy and meaning of his work.” When he’s not painting, you can find the “Fuzzy Blue Monster” enjoying his time in nature; he considers himself an avid outdoors person.
