The work of Yann Houri focuses on the complexity of the human subject and human emotions in the virtual age. Through painting and installation Yann Houri portrays his passion for visually recreating human emotion in a violent and expressive form.
Juggling between abstraction and realism, and employing an explosive colour palette, Yann Houri's rich works evoke feelings of resurrection, impalpable joy and an underlying sentiment of hope and joie de vivre.
Born in 1990 in Paris, France, Yann Houri is a self-taught artist. Well known for his heavy impasto work, he explores his fascination with the unpredictability and irrationality of our daily choices and the repercussions of their consequent actions. Yann Houri has exhibited his work at Georges R. Brown Center in Texas, Suntec Singapore Center, Fondation Deutsch in Lausanne, San Mateo Center, Fort Mason Center in San Francisco and Grand Palais in Paris. Moments is Houri's debut exhibition in the UK.
