Known for the boldness in his work coupled with political and social commentary, Hassan Jouni’s pieces depict subject matter that is both lyrical and narrative. His usage of color is expressive of inner emotions or possibly symbolic in meaning. The strong figure in the foreground raises his arm high while the sun rises behind him. Further evoking the idea of rebirth are the figures emerging from their tombs or rafts. Bathed in warm colors from the light of the sun, they feel as if they are stepping into the dawn of a new era.
