Desert Rouge by Joelle Kem Lika
Joëlle Kem Lika
2 Rue Saint Sauveur, 75002, Paris
phone: +33 (0)1 7557 6117
Joëlle Kem LIka is a respected contemporary French artist whose paintings are life-affirming, exuberant and full of vibrant colour.
 
At the heart of her work is a wish to celebrate and encourage us all to prize the natural world; indeed she says she draws her inspiration entirely from nature: 'I try to capture the strength of life in my works, such as the force of the sea, the vibrancy of life in the ocean, and the delight to be had from flowers, skies and sunsets.' 
 
She works in watercolour and acrylic paints and genres she specialises in include abstracts, impressionism and painting from the perspective of being in a situation - so as an artist she's imagining what it would be like to be in a wave, or to be a ladybird in a flower.
 
Pictured here is her intensely red abstract painting Desert Rouge.
