"Houria Niati often employs vivid raw colours painted directly over her canvasses without sketching. A daring artist by nature she works spontaneously... She normally paints in layers starting with bright colours first followed by darker ones...Then scratch the darker ones to make the brighter appairing again..The trade mark of Niati's style."
Salah Hassan- Journal of contemporary African Art, New York 1995.
"Using oil and pastels, she creates an explosion of shifting colour with a sense of optimism...Her palette is sharp hot oranges and red throb beneath her relentless blues of desert skies...At times, the paint is thin dragged and scratched at others thick sweeping and gestual..."
Sue Hubbard-Time Out, London 1990
"Houria Niati is an intriguing artist. Her work expresses a commitment to creativity which has little fear of exploration and exudes a freshness which lingers in the mind...Walking past her drawings in oil pastels is like embarking on an excursion of the subconscious suggestively laden with many messages and metaphors..."
Kwesi Owusu-Artrage, London 1984
