“Silk Road” Paintings by Kour Pour
The art of rug making is ancient, awe-inspiring, and often a family affair. Tiny hands are favored on the looms to create the intricate patterns and details, so children learn to weave and knot from a young age. A rug of size may take a year to produce.
Kour Pour, a young Los Angeles-based artist adds his own twist to the story. His large-scale paintings may themselves be a year in creation. His process includes a mixture of canvas preparation to mimic the weave and weft, silk screen, and over-painting. The results are no doormat.
