The artist demonstrates a versatile style where sophistication meets simplicity in a conjunction of colors. Rajae’s approach to art can be deemed as expressionist: starting from emotions, she develops a language that is able to take different directions depicting the feelings of the moment, creating a mix between figurative and abstract.The artworks are a mixture between simplicity and sophistication, terms that reflect her multifaced personality itself. The artist calls the viewers to adopt the emotional glance of their own inner children, which scratches the surface of what we can see and goes in dept on what we can feel.
