  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Like Morpheus, the sandman intends to make asleep the mortals. A wave here transforms itself to the contact of the sandman ready to deliver a bird. The bird universal symbol of the soul, invites us to leave the body weight in order to travel toward our dreams. This tree shelters the dream of a woman and links the sky and the earth. Many myths evoke the relationship between the man and the tree. We can see the allegory of a birth, besides above the woman’s head, there is the body of an infant winged like a putto who crowns her. The patterns of her clothes are inspired by Japanese art, rocks and birds “become your own feathers, be radiant, so all tree can be an amazing city” James Applewhite.

fictional character

Boshra Coste

France Born in: 1983

Boshra Coste is a French artist born in 1983.

When she was little, she used to draw on fabric and leather in her father's garment factory, so it was only natural that when she began painting she would chose leather as a support.

On her plain backgrounds, she creates complex figures made with a subtle combination of color keys imprinted with elaborate details in the same style as the work of Henri Matisse.

Fascinated by liturgical art and mythology she overlaps bodies and colors, intertwining straight lines and curves. Her colourful frescoes embody the fusion of her dual heritage; Western and Eastern.
