VINCENZO COHEN

The Way to Hammamet

 The painting was created through the encounter of large color spots and represent scenes of life in North Africa by expressing love for exotic and distant places. The artwork focuses on the gradual disappearance of natural spaces and civilisation and testifies, like in a living crib, the tradition of the Berber Bedouins. Landscape shapes blend in the background through the encounter of colors. The chromatic background that comes from the combination of stains of watercolor recalls the weaving of oriental fabrics and the wear of time.
