Artist and Model Peter Shoukry
Born in Cairo Egypt, And immigrated to the US in 1996.
At the age of 15, Peter Shoukry Started out by displaying his art work at coffee shops, and local vendors in Los Angeles. He later became recognized and picked up for group exhibitions by galleries in DTLA. His career started to ignite right after high school with a show at the Museum of Contemporary art in Los Angeles. Shortly after, his career became International with gallery and museum exhibitions all around the world including Paris, and Vienna. Not to mention International Shows with the European Union, his abstract art has also sold in private show rooms alongside originals by Picasso, Dali and Cezanne.
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. His design style involves a process of first sketching, and then tapping off bit by bit. His process, though painstakingly labor intensive, lends a magnificent result. Peter Shoukry’s Art forces you to contemplate it, to stare at it for hours, drawn like a moth to a flame, and then to walk away, pondering what you just saw, deeply affected.
He 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.” says Peter.
Peter has had an incredible art career, the sky is the limit.
