Graffiti Art Magazine featuring Yassine Mekhnache
Don’t forget to pick up the latest Graffiti Art Magazine featuring this beautiful article with
Yassine “Yaze” Mekhnache in his studio in Paris.
Yaze was the first artist to exhibit at Catherine Ahnell Gallery when we opened in may 2013. Most of ihs work was sold but you can still find a couple of pieces available in NY here:
Yassine “YAZE” Mekhnache began his career as a self-taught street artist in Lyon, France, but has since begun to work indoors, with more conventional painting materials. Mekhnache is best known for his large-scale, multi-media paintings that incorporate elements of Moroccan embroidery and traditional craft materials
(such as mulberry bark, thick paper gorged with wood or cloth) as well as graffiti tools like marker pens.
