Kunel Gaur

Artist Bio

Kunel Gaur is a creative director/designer whose personal visual style is inspired by functional design and brutalist architecture and design movement that emerged in the 1950s and has come to evolve as a response to the overwhelming use of embellishment on visual communication both online and offline.

Kunel's creative process feeds on channeled thoughts or ideas and found sensibilities. Looking at reconstruction and appropriation as means to create a sensory overlap and extract new meaning, he creates a variety of assemblages from the material around him. He builds using architectural material like wood, concrete, resin, metal, acrylic paint, screen printing techniques, glass and electricals amongst other such. He often mixes his work with the written word, flirting with what could be called prose, poetry or at once both.

As a creative entrepreneur, Kunel's initiatives have been featured on platforms like London Design Festival, Jerusalem Design Week, and TEDx. As an artist, his work has been discussed on Hypebeast, Icographica, Vogue, Bored Panda, Picame, Fubiz amongst others.
