Born in 1982 in Tunis, Thameur Mejri graduated from the Institute of Fine Arts in Tunis. In his initial abstract paintings, Thameur Mejri inserts figurative elements. The human figure finds a predominant place by its recurrence. As a standing figure or reduced into a simple skull or other bones, it is revealed by the application of fine lines made in charcoal or pastel emerging delicately from the large flat areas of colour. Colours collide into one another as if to better exacerbate the vicissitudes endured by the body. These violent oppositions of colours also testify to the speed of execution of the artist, made possible using acrylic paint. By establishing an atmosphere of confrontation, the artist manages within a single work to transcribe the impetuosity of his gesture while creating a suspended chaos where the complexities of human existence appear to everyone. This book is the artist’s first monograph and provides a better understanding of the discovery of these particularly immersive large formats.
