Algerian - Houssam Mokrane

- +

What is the root of beauty? Is tradition, religion and custom the omnipresent forum for poise, elegance and grace? Or is history, lore and heritage a symbol of prowess and potentiality?

Framed on Metallic Canvas paper, Houssam Mokrane’s highly detailed illustration Algerian seeks to answer these questions. Inspired by the character Eva Green from the film Kingdom of Heaven, Mokrane provides a high-quality illustrative-resolution of his character donning a stunning, bedazzled hijab and beguiling jewels in breath-taking, black and white drawing. It is as if time is suspended and the princess, who could be a contemporaneous heroin or a rendering from past ages, mesmerises as she glares off into the distance.

Houssam Mokrane is an illustrator from Algeria, currently based in Paris, France. He is dedicated to the old traditions of illustrative art, and his artworks weave motifs from his Algerian heritage through a self-described ‘PopCulture style.’

Each artwork is made available in one size only that is specifically chosen by our in-house art curators based on the most ideal dimensions for the artistic creation on display.


The current artworks' size is:

34x24" / 86.4x61.0cm



Comes in our framed canvas which is a 38mm stretched canvas within a traditional picture frame. The simple addition of a high quality wooden picture frame creates a completely new form of wall art; quite distinct to any other form and is sure to create a timeless piece on your wall.


The thin frame sits approximately 5mm from the edge of the canvas helping create a floating border.
