BiographyKour Pour (born 1987 in Exeter, England) lives and works in Los Angeles. He graduated BFA from Otis College of Art and Design, LA in 2010. Since then he has been exploring various aspects of identity formations. His main interest concentrates around social and cultural constructions of ‘the West’ and ‘the East’ and the way in which these constructions have defined our thinking. In the contemporary art world, Kour Pour has become famous for his paintings based on rugs and carpets. Using a range of different techniques, such as silkscreeen painting or the application of several paint layers by the use of a broomstick, Kour Pour translates the characteristic of particular rugs onto the panelled surfaces.
