Born the 9th of May
1966 in Constantine Algeria, Djihane Boughaba was fascinated with the
fairy world of colours and the harmony of words since earliest childhood.

unbearable lightness of senses, nurtured by the delicious craze of the
artist. Transposed into another dimension, surrealist, cubist, and
abstract, where there are only beauty and colours, paints and canvas.
