Jacques Bosser was born Jacques Sachedina in 1946 in Le Havre, France. His work embodies a refreshing originality, adapting a traditional African language rooted in ancient sorcery to make a modern alphabetical-inspired collection of prints. In this engaging series, Bosser employs dynamic looping forms and vivid colors to express a hidden language. The resulting pieces radiate charm, warmth, and childlike fantasy.
