Bechir is a Metis, a mixture of Mauritanian father and Liberian mother. Born in 1982 in Liberia, he spent his childhood in Guinea where he discovered painting with an old painter. Then he moved to Nouakchott.
Bechir's first source of inspiration seems to be his own personality shaped by a dual culture: black Africa and white Africa. Bechir mixes everything to do only one work. He mixes genres, spaces, symbols, times. It mixes and harmoniously cohabit traditions and modernity. Bechir uses figurative to integrate with the abstract. He plays with the natural colors that represent his world both real and universal. It varies media because art is everywhere.Like any self-respecting artist, Bechir claims the freedom to create, to produce, to paint. At this moment it is the doors that inspire it, the doors to the light, to space, to movement and to freedom.
