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. Around 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 and strive to capture and celebrate memories and true feelings of the past, the present and the future. I share stories, lessons of a lifetime, emotions and my own observations of existence.
Spontaneous movements filled with lights, colors and often accompanied with poetry create a unique universal language and through space emerge the four elements of life, Earth, Water, Air and Fire that constantly transcend and manifest through my creations.
My artworks are a pure translation of my own realities and whilst I graciously invite the minds to travel and tell stories to the world, I welcome people into my own, hoping that it all resonates with thousands of hearts and souls and get them closer to the source that holds all the answers.
I participated in various exhibitions in the Middle East and overseas. My artworks can now be found in private and corporate collection.
