Rachid Koraichi :- ALGERIA

Born in Algeria in 1947. Works and lives in Tunisia.

He employs calligraphy in an abstract symbolic manner so that his alphabets turn into symbols for revolution and protest. He avoids colour, especially in his graphics, and depends on a dramatic contrast of black with white.
