Youssra Raouchi, (b. 1999), is a Moroccan multi-disciplinary artist, whose mastery of merging figurative and expressionist art in painting and the use of mixed media inspires extensive dialogues. She is a graduate of the National Institute of Fine Arts in Tetouan, Morocco, where she studied Fine Art. Her interest in historical, political, social, & ecological issues and painting as a concept, galvanizes her work with light markings of the influence of artists such as Anselm Kiefer, Robert Rauschenberg and Hilma af Klint. With a hybrid practice, her works transcend categorization, questioning mediums, and the limitations they place on the artists.
Youssra has participated in various projects in institutions and spaces in Morocco such as Le 18, Festival d’Art Indigene, 2021, FLATTA Residency, 2020 and a collective exhibition at Villa Des Arts Casablanca.
