The Souiri artists are unclassifiable and heterogeneous. With no academic training, born in a territory that has never been influenced by the Fine Arts schools, they draw their inspiration from the multiple references that the city has to offer. These self-taught creators have thus succeeded in generating a singular iconography and plasticity. Their painting is at once instinctive and thoughtful, simple and rich, mysterious and eloquent. Their works have in common the fluidity of the curve, the profusion of shapes and the richness of colours. The repeated undulating movements inspired by water, breath, music and trance make anthropomorphic forms, dreamlike creatures and protective symbols appear together. An art of perpetual movement and constant regeneration of forms, these works open the door to a mysterious, mystical world of great complexity.
