KUROSH YAHYAI  |  ARTIST IN RESIDENCE 

MAY 14 - JUNE 2, 2018

ARTIST RECEPTION: JUNE 7, 7-9PM

1805 Gallery is pleased to announce Kurosh Yahyai as the new artist in residence from May 14 through June 2, 2018. Yahyai is a San Diego based painter exploring themes of anxiety. Focusing on faceless figures framed by multi-colored and textured patterns, Yahyai positions his expressionless subjects within claustrophobic spaces that visualize the unconscious mind as it processes the pressures of modern life.  An artist reception will be held on Thursday, June 7 from 7 to 9 PM. 

Kurosh Yahyai holds an MFA from San Diego State University and a BA from Sacramento State University.
