There are no limits. For her, movie posters and musical album jackets are revealed as pure masterpieces that characterize an era, a symbol, a memory specific to each person, a thought: the magic of the image that makes you vibrate. And what is this mysterious craze for old newspaper releases/clippings? Is it a relative fascination with history? Which hands went through these?
By leafing through these publications, locating articles, images, photos, and advertisements, imagination and inspiration begin the path of artistic achievement.
So the technique can begin: tear, assemble and glue, associate characters. Some of these historical publications are preserved and spared by his hands because they are too precious in his eyes. Hayat uses mixed techniques thus combining collage, acrylic, photography, aerosols, gilding ...
