Fine Arts Alumnus Kour Pour in Architectural Digest

KOUR POUR’S FIRST SOLO EXHIBITION OPENS

By Michael Slenske
 
Growing up in southwestern England, Kour Pour got an early education in textiles from his Iranian-born father, who owned a carpet shop during the late 1980s. “They were always around,” says the artist, who has incorporated his intimacy with woven materials into his own work. Pour, now based in Los Angeles, made the first of his paintings of traditional carpets for his college graduation show using found images from museum and auction catalogues of Oriental rugs.

INFORMATION/TIPS TO SHARE WITH FUTURE STUDENTS?
Do it all! There is so much to learn and explore. Take advantage of every course you take. I regret not taking more classes
but I ended up taking 18 units almost every semester. It is ok to be different, because that is what sets you apart as an artist.
