Pol Kurucz 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 CEO 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 moneymaking restaurant loss making in its indie art basement. Then he suddenly died of absurdity.
Pol 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 and fine art projects from his Sao Paulo studio. His photos have been featured in over a hundred publications including: Vogue, ELLE, Glamour, The Guardian (Arts), Adobe Create, Hunger TV, Sleek and Nylon.
