The Mosaic Rooms is delighted to present Working From Lifan exhibition by one of the leading contemporary Moroccan artists Yamou (aka Abderrahim Yamou). This exhibition will feature new and recent paintings, previously unseen. Yamou is inspired by the natural world, by organic processes, continuity and change, the tensions and instabilities of boundaries and of spaces in between. Yet beneath the surface of these beautiful paintings, produced in both large and small scale, there is an underlying sense of disquiet.
