1,000 piece puzzle featuring the artwork of Kour Pour
Peacock Tiger is one of a series of remarkable medium and large scale painting/block prints that Kour Pour has created in recent years. This one is our personal favorite and, as it so happens, the artist's favorite as well.
Recently granted US citizenship, Pour's experience as an immigrant with a mixed-raced background is the foundation of his work. Weaving together representational imagery, abstract patterning, and ornamental elements, he creates new hybrid artworks that trace cultural exchange around the globe.
Included in the puzzle is an interview with Kour along with additional images of his most recent work.
Through painting, printmaking, and sculpture, Pour’s works encompass diverse subject matter and culturally specific references, ranging from Persian carpets, Japanese ukiyo-e prints, Mexican tile patterns, and Korean Minhwa folk art.
Pour attended Otis College of Art and Design, Los Angeles, CA. Recent solo exhibitions include Wild Garden at SHRINE and Sargent’s Daughter galleries in NYC, 2021, and Familiar Spirits at Kavi Gupta, Chicago, 2021.
