My new works are around the movement of the “Ravens”, interpreted in “Corps-Beaux”. The concept is to take the “Raven” out of its darkness, to paint it with color.

Mustapha Rafik: “Beauty is relative. It is difficult for me to define it. To define beauty is to kill -I therefore dare not define what should not be defined. What is important is to experience it, live it, … On the other hand I am based on some references like the book ‘Esthétique positive – Introduction à l’exploration structurale des arts plastiques’ by Emile
Tainmont and others, in order to familiarise myself with it -without tilting it.”
