Kour Pour - Solo Show

24 Mar - 14 May, 2022

New Homes, New Places

Gallery 1957 London is proud to announce a solo exhibition of works by British-Iranian artist Kour Pour, running from March 24th to April 30th, 2022. The exhibition marks his first in the country of his birth.

Based in Los Angeles, artist Kour Pour’s creative processes, source material, and painting techniques stem from a wide range of cultures and histories. His experience as an immigrant and biography are the foundation of his work, reflecting his transitory heritage; Pour is of British and Iranian descent and grew up in a mixed-race household – but the artist is also newly American, having been granted citizenship during the pandemic.///

As a child, Pour spent considerable time in his father's carpet shop, memories of which have become a central component of his practice. These cultural threads inform his work and add to a wide range of visual languages; the interplay of form and content becomes a way for Pour to convey meaning in his art.

He draws inspiration from visual traditions that include Persian carpets, medieval Islamic manuscripts, Chinese paintings, and ukiyo-e prints, among others.
