We never tire of finding art in everything that we see, and Peter Shoukry's is no different. Of Egyptian origin and Coptic Christian faith, Peter Shoukry Started out by displaying his art work at coffee shops and local vendors in Los Angeles at the age of 15. His career started to ignite right after high school with a show at the Museum of Contemporary art in Los Angeles. After becoming recognized by the legendary fashion house Louis Vuitton in a world class art contest, Peter Shoukry was inspired to create a new wave of art, one he calls “Fashion Abstract Art”. Bright colors, rich traditional textiles and designs fitted in an original illustration that depicts a story of inspiration from his abstract mind.
"Art to me is only art if it’s trying to say something, I have never made an art piece to show something that is obvious, I will show it to you the way I see it. With every painting I try to make that line between reality and imagination thinner, until I have no idea what’s real anymore. They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and since the beholder (me) is an artist, I can show you how or why it’s beautiful," says Peter Shoukry.
Peter was recently signed by one of Los Angeles’ Elite Modeling agencies, Slater Model Management, to become a fashion model. "I have always been fascinated by the French saying 'la vie behome' which means to live the life of an artist, I will never stop seeking new ways to express my creativity, whether its behind a canvas or in front of a camera."
