Born in 1979, Mohamed Kahouadji is a self-taught painter and sculptor, passionate about Japanese art, manga culture that has rocked his childhood.
A true tribute to Japanese history, he merges in his works the eras as well as the references according to his imagination and his visions. Mixing ancestral techniques and icons of the Asian Pop Culture, his art astonishes becoming a tribute as explosive as fascinating.
His work pays homage to an art form that has taken root on the European continent through a Western prism. The artist speaks to us of a form of revenge of the East on the West, by reaffirming the know-how of Japanese artists, particularly the Shin-Hanga movement. Indeed, he revisits the art of prints, the representation of nature and its cults.
In his works, the artist reinterprets the figures of the art of Manga, and sacralizes them by integrating them into utopian, poetic and grandiose natural landscapes. He then gives all its importance to nature and its beauty, which will become one of his central themes. Polymorphous clouds, vibrant skies and vast expanses of water justify his pigmented gradations and softened by the technique of sfumato.
