Kevork Mourad

Born in Qamishli, Syria, Kevork Mourad now lives and works in New York where he realizes three-dimensional works on paper and fabric. He makes these using a unique method which is developed through the use of Monotypes and calligraphic gestures. The countries of his origin all tell stories of destroying territories and his works are often built as theatrical backdrops, to not ever forget the devastation of a war that never ended.

The artist works through drawing and quick sketches, squirting paint squeezed from a small bottle into expressive lines, using a finger or a brush to make a sort of symbolic reportage.The rapid and definitive marking, move across the boundaries of figuration and abstraction, creating an exquisite tension between the beauty of the process itself and the inexorable destruction and fragmentation they represent. Mourad is a very versatile artist who often accompanies his installations with video, music,
