Artist Highlight — Chad Kouri



An artist Johalla Projects knows very well…Chad Kouri.

Chad’s work can be found here.

We’re excited to talk about Chad Kouri’s upcoming group show “Studio Visit” at the Patti and Rusty Rueff West Gallery at Purdue University.

Also featured in the show are Stephen Eichhorn (found here and here and here!) and Cody Hudson (found here and here!). You should check them out, too, as they’re both supremely masterful artists!

Chad is a hugely talented Chicago artist who has exhibited with JP and collaborated with us on a variety of different cool projects. He is also a founding member of the Post Family — “a resource, gallery, letterpress & screenprinting studio, experimental music venue and a creative incubator awarded and critically applauded by the art and design world.” The Post Family studio/gallery is also directly above Johalla Projects at 1821 W. Hubbard! We all affectionately refer to 1821 as “the bunk bed.”

Chad is showing at the Rueff West Gallery from January 30th to February 17th, so if you’re in the Purdue area, you should definitely go and check out Chad’s work in “Studio Visit,” an exhibition curated by Purdue MFA candidate Garet Martin!
