    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    L'obsession de Youcha pour la jeunesse fuyant sur l'océan et périssant dans le détroit de Gibraltar hante ses toiles, les peuplant de créatures marines et aériennes, de frêles embarcations et de points d'interrogation, de mille regards et de mains de Fatima désespérées.

His paintings chant a way to apprehend the everyday life far from the usual boring parts.

His universe is a perpetual swing between dream and reality.
Youcha is a self-taught artist, but he has always been painting with his wide opened eyes looking at the bell tower adjacent to the minaret of the neighborhood. Farther away, there is the ocean and those tubs where ten, or twenty or even thirty men climb in their quest for the European heaven.
