Kour Pour 

Coy Tiger Series (2022)  

 

Kour Pour is a British-Iranian artist based in Los Angeles investigating his experience of living between cultures. Pour’s visually complex paintings, prints, sculptures, and collages draw upon non-Western craft and decorative traditions in a meditation on global exchange, identity and migration. Persian rug motifs and patterns frequently populate the artist’s work in a nod to the displacement and transitions experienced by migrant communities throughout the western world.
