Kevork Mourad
Kevork Mourad, an artist of Armenian origin, was born in 1970 in Kamechli, Syria. In 1996, he received his MFA from the Yerevan Institute of Fine Arts in Armenia.  His technique of spontaneous painting, in which he shares the stage with musicians, is a collaboration in which art and music develop in counterpoint to each other. Mourad’s visual creations are projected behind the musicians after they collectively create a timeline for the story to be told. That timeline sets the points at which spontaneous painting will be created in line with the story, and those at which pre-recorded animation will come into play—a frame-by-frame creation that mimics the artist’s painting technique. Mourad has collaborated most recently with Syrian clarinetist and composer Kinan Azmeh, Brookyn Rider, Eve Beglarian, Ken Ueno, Kim Kashkashian, Dinuk Wijeratne, Liubo Borissov, Haruka Fuji, Tambuco, and with Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble.  He has performed at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Chelsea Museum of Art, the Rhode Island School of Design, the Nara Museum in Japan, and the Rubin Museum of Art.  His paintings will next be exhibited at JK Gallery in Los Angeles and at the Rafia Gallery in Damascus.  His paintings combine the movement of black lines that characterize his live works with palettes of layered color. His themes often relate to the ideas of history—living and lost—and the respect for one’s heritage, both ecological and cultural.
