The paintings of Yann Houri focus on the complexity of the human subject and translate human emotions and time challenges into how we define ourselves in this mechanical and virtual age. The capture of each moment of life and each vibration is what human kind fails to admire in a contemporary lifestyle that pushes him to play constantly against time rather than cooperate with it in order to grasp the present moment. His art questions the way we conduct ourselves in our everyday lives and emphasizes on the contemplation of the beauty of our own emotions and actions, as the present acts as a vector of energy. In an age where human creativity becomes data and takes the form of replicable codes, his work confronts the viewer with a radical question of “Who am I?”
Yann Houri is a self-taught artist, currently living and working in Paris. Today, well known for his unique style of work, he stands apart from his contemporaries with his made-to-order and new use of different media and techniques, which allow him to explore his fascination of Mankind’s daily choices and the repercussions of their consequent actions. Through his medium he explosively portrays his passion for visually recreating human emotion in a violently expressive and relentless form. With brilliancy, he juggles abstract with realism: his work is explosive with color but effortlessly secured together with minute detail.
The effervescence of your frst impressions fades away to reveal a deep palette of emotions offered through an intricate framework display of color and texture. He brings to life the feelings of resurrection, impalpable joy and an underlying sentiment of hope. Human emotions are unarguably the inspiration behind his paintings and it is across facial expression accentuated by nuances and intensities between color, that Yann Houri brings not only the opposing and explosive powers of the feelings of others, but also of his own, out into the open.
Yann Houri was born in 1990 in Paris, France. As a photography passionate and talented drawer, he knew how to express these two natural skills in fine artworks. Yann Houri has been featured in numerous group and solo exhibitions including Galerie Ange Basso (Paris), ZK Gallery (San Francisco ), BAFA Gallery (Geneva), ZCA Gallery (Tel Aviv), Banus Gallery (Marbella).
