About the Artist
Peter Koury is both a mural artist and a painter working in acrylics, oils and mixed media. The first thing you notice about his work are the colors which create an intense vibrancy in the painting. His early career drew him to the Los Angelos area where he was influenced by the incredible street art scene and where his work was exhibited in several galleries and bought by several celebrities including Rob Zombie. Since he has returned to the midwest, his paintings have been exhibited in galleries such as the Hardy Gallery and the Neville Public Museum. His murals and artwork can be found in many restaurants, private residences, on motorcycles, shoes, hats, in Doctors offices, along with his many donations to local charities.
"In my twenty-six years of painting my work has gone through many evolutions. Currently much of my work has become allegorical. I use symbols and illustrated imagery to convey the issues that I see and read about in my daily life. My concerns for the world in which we inhabit and the destruction of the eco system has been the subject matter of much of my work"
