Pol Kurucz

Pol was born with two different names to a French mother in a Hungarian hospital. His childhood hyperactivity was treated with theater, and theater was later treated with finance. By 27 he was a manager by day and a stage director by night. He then went on consecutive journeys to Bahrain and Brazil, to corporate islands and favelas. He has sailed on the shores of the adult industry and of militant feminism and launched a mainstream money making bar loss making in its indie art basement. Then he suddenly died of absurdity. He was reborn in 2015 and merged his two names and his contradictory lives into one where absurdity makes sense. Today he works on eccentric fashion, celebrity and fine art projects from Los Angeles to the world.

Pol’s images have been featured in over a hundred publications including Vogue, ELLE, Glamour, Marie Claire, GQ, The Guardian, CNN online, BBC online, Dazed, Paper, Adobe Create, Hunger, Sleek, Nylon, Hi-Fructose.
