  • About the artwork

    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.

Boshra Coste

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, it was then obvious that she will chose leather as a support when she began painting.

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

Fascinated by liturgical art and mythology she overlaps the bodies and the colors and intertwine the straight lines and the curves. Her colorful frescoes embody the fusion of her two origins, Western and Eastern.
