Aleah Koury was born in Bellingham, Washington, and spent his early childhood in California before moving to the Midwest. His diverse artistic background has encouraged him to be bold in experimenting with new materials and imagery. At various times he has incorporated collage, printing, found materials and a variety of different types of paint media in his work.
A gifted colorist, over the past decade Koury has increasingly been drawn to pastel as the purest expression for his painting. In all of his original artwork it is the uninhibited sensuality of color that is the true subject, whether found in the beauty of the natural world or the poetry of the imagination. More recently, the artist has further stretched the expressive possibilities of pastel by combining it with enamel and latex paints, gold, bronze and silver leafing, oil pastel and pencil to create works of spectacular richness and texture.
