POL KURUCZ

BIOGRAPHY

Born in Budapest to a French mother and Hungarian father, Pol Kurucz was a hyperactive child who found a means of channelling his energy through theatre. He did not, however, neglect his studies or professional future. At the age of 27, he was still just as hyperactive, but became an industrial executive by day and theatre director by night. Through his extensive travel, particularly to Brazil, and his many projects, his artistic career gradually gained the upper hand and he started taking photos in 1995. In 2011, he founded Kolors in Budapest, a nonconformist and feminist art collective. He moved to Sao Paulo in Brazil in 2016 and launched a version of the collective there with local stakeholders. Heavily influenced by artists like Magritte or Jodorowsky and American and Japanese pop culture alike, Kolors is now focused on eccentricity in fashion and celebrity, and is fully committed to feminism, the defence of minorities, or the denunciation of consumerism. Photos by Pol Kurucz are now published in major magazines (Vogue, ELLE, Dazed, GQ, etc.) and at photo exhibitions photos (ArtExpo NYC) or fashion weeks (Shanghai and New York).  ...
