Full of violence, the movements of colours almost obliterate the person, who becomes under our eyes a metaphor of desperate vitality surging from darkness.
Ibrahim Shahda (Egypt,1929-France,1991) was fighting against cancer since 1975 when he painted a serie of large,vibrant self-portraits. ‘Autoportrait au visage marqué de rouge’,1982-83 (self portrait with reddish face).
