KAL MANSUR

Kal Mansur (born in 1965) is known for his acrylic glass sculptures, which he has been producing since 2006. He holds a BFA from the University of Texas (Austin). His art practice encompasses sculpture, painting, and large-scale installations. His work is characterized by acrylic pieces of varying colors and thicknesses contained within a diffused acrylic case. The work is unique in its use of diffusion and concealment as compositional elements. The sculptures emanate light, which becomes apparent when one focuses on the edges that cast shifting, hued shadows. This kinetic quality is foundational to Mansur's work, creating a hybrid between gestural abstraction and the pristine constructions found in minimalism.

Mansur is currently represented by galleries in the United States, Canada, and Europe. His work is in various collections, including the Centre for Health Sciences at George Brown College (Toronto), the REAL Institute at Ryerson University (Toronto), Tiffany and Co (Moscow), Related Companies (New York), Senvest Corporation (Montreal), Sloan-Kettering Center (New York), Alliance Capital (New York), and KPMG (Toronto).  He lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
