Chad Kouri

Region: Midwest

Known for his vibrant, abstract compositions, Chad Kouri examines themes commonly associated with visual literacy––specifically how we see, read, and remember the world around us. His practice is influenced by minimalism, jazz, conceptual and systematic art, design, fashion, printmaking, and the gray areas in between. His most recent works are meant to prompt introspection, inspiring a slower pace in our day-to-day lives as a form of self-care and personal grounding. His projects range in diversity from one-of-a-kind and editioned artworks to self-publishing, interactive displays, large-scale installations, curation and arts facilitation, design direction and consulting, and most recently, an exploration of painting.
