One of a kind is Chad Kouri’s kind of art

Chicago-based artist, Chad Kouri's work is always ongoing. Because of  “equal interests in conceptual art, consumer culture, typography, design, jazz and the gray areas between these fields," Kouri explains. "My body of work is more a collection of various ongoing projects, thoughts and experiments tied together by a strong sense of composition, concise documentation and an overall vibe of optimism than a seamless display of a ‘style’ or ‘genre’."

With his “Shape and Color Studies” series, Kouri attempts to create as many pieces as possible in one sitting.  The 3.5" x 5" compositions are small, but Kouri centers his work on the idea that since each piece is created by hand they're all one of a kind—just the way Kouri wants them to be.
