Geometry and figures are central to Yassine’s work. He paints in layers and combines elements into human life stories. His works are influenced from past and present life experiences, often focusing on human expressions, divulging secrets and exploring stories with a look of more than one meaning. Each work carries a certain story, emotion outside and inside spheres, combining abstract elements with figuration and geometrical lines. His arrangements are realistic and moves into a space of small details.
‘I take days, weeks, months, years to make my artwork ready, and when someone asks me what inspires and influences I simple say,- today will not be the same as tomorrow or yesterday that means that I can’t be inspired and influenced by only one thing. Each day brings me something new. New ideas, philosophies, stories which I carry during the whole process of making it to come live.’
Yassine Mourit lives and works in London, United Kingdom.
