The Language Of Art In Life - And Life In Art
Lourans Mikhail is a muralist, sculptor, painter and graphic designer here in Chattanooga.
A Marine veteran, his work has been shown in galleries in Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago and Chattanooga - and he’s painted large-scale murals from San Diego, Anaheim and New Orleans to Chattanooga, Nashville and Memphis.
Lourans is also Facility and Maintenance Manager for Sculpture Fields at Montague Park in Chattanooga - and with his partner Shanna Forrestall, they’ve created a new online show, “Chit Chat Chattanooga,” featuring local business owners, artists and influencers.
I spoke with Lourans after he completed a month-long artist residency at Chateau Orqueveaux in France.
