Meet The Artist

I am a French-Moroccan artist born and raised in France in the Champagne Ardennes region. When starting scribbling on paper from a very young age all I could see were entangled black penciled lines taking unconventional forms but with always the inner conviction that each sketch was hiding an enigma, a hidden message, a story, a transcription of something mysterious, a translation of the unknown but yet real. During my late 20’s I moved to London and later on to Dubai where I built up a body of my own work. From naïve art I naturally shifted to abstract art representing for me one of the perfect, most faithful, timeless and unlimited way of expression.

 

Through my art I attempt to make the invisible visible allowing the body and mind to speak loud on canvas and unveil mysteries of a lifetime. I let the brush be an extension of my inner being, my conscious & unconscious minds. I strive to capture as well as celebrate memories and true feelings of the past, the present and the future. I share stories, lessons of  life, emotions and my own observations of existence. 

 

Spontaneous movements filled with lights and bright colours with the perpetual emergence of the four elements: Earth, Water, Air and Fire that keep transcending and manifesting through my creations. 

 

My artworks are a pure translation of my own realities. I graciously invite the minds to question themselves and travel to their known and unknown. I welcome people into my world, and I tell them stories hoping that they resonate with their hearts and souls and get them closer to the source that holds all the answers. I often accompany my paintings & creations with writings & poetry creating a new and universal language that speaks for those who are curious to see, listen and explore.


I mainly use acrylic and other media such as gold leaves, sand and others material. I never truly know where the art piece will start from and where it will end if it ever ends. Water is more than an essential element in the production of my artworks. Water give my work structure,  shapes, forms and its unique blueprint, story and history. I will keep exploring other ways, other mediums & tools to enrich my paintings.

I participated in various exhibitions in the Middle East and overseas. My artworks can now be found in private and corporate collection.
