Emmanuel, CEO & Founder
After four years of investment banking in Tokyo and Hong Kong, Emmanuel undertook an MBA at INSEAD, during which he worked for the CEO of a French leading utility company on a strategic reorganization project.
Emmanuel has an extensive experience in finance, business development as well as management. He also holds a Master degree from a top-tier Business School, and Bachelor degrees in Economics and Law.
In his free time, Emmanuel enjoys meeting artists and visiting galleries and museums across the globe. He owns a collection of Japanese animation Art.
Since her childhood, Oriane has been keen on painting and drawing. After obtaining a Master degree in finance from University Paris Dauphine in 2008, she worked for the banking industry in Tokyo and Hong-Kong, where she was struck by the tremendous development of the local art market.
Oriane is responsible for the gallery's overall communication, including the management of press relationships and social networks, which she has to date managed in parallel to completing a degree in interior design. Fond of abstract art, her favourite artist is Vassily Kandinsky. From our selection, she particularly likes Benjamin Capdevielle's work.
Educated in sociology, anthropology, philosophy as well as in international business, Guillaume currently works as a marketing counsel in a leading market research company in Paris, for which he is in charge of quantitative studies for a wide range of clients operating across the globe.
For KOCHI Gallery, Guillaume plays a major role in the promotion of our featured artists and their works. He is responsible for the development of the artist-related content you can find on our website. Guillaume owns a collection of street art.
Lauriane Queffélec is a freelance art director with more than ten years of experience. Specialized in editorial design, she regularly collaborates with the French major publishing houses. She has worked on inspiring art books such as "The adventure of contemporary photography", "Coca-Cola in art" and "Sennelier, a history in color".
Lauriane graduated from the HEAR (Haute Ecole des Arts du Rhin) in Strasbourg, France. She is fond of abstract expressionists and new realists. From our current artists, Florent Touchot is her favourite, reminding her Villeglé's late 40's lacerated collages.
Yeah, some people got interested in what we do! You will find here a selection of the press coverage from various media.
