About

 

I am a Moroccan Casablanca-based illustrator, graphic designer, and creative director. Trained as an architect, I started my artistic practice in response to a visceral need to express my obsession about citizenship, public spaces, belonging, freedom, and the individual in the Moroccan context. A context I have always actively tried to understand and demystify. Firstly through my Architecture studies, which helped me sharpen the reading of the city to a certain extent. Then through my direct involvement in Architectural heritage and the cultural scene in Casablanca, which allowed bringing life and concreteness to my understanding. This quest took me through graphic design, photography and illustration: an intuitive juggle between representation, interpretation, and appropriation of the unseen, the unsaid but the still daily undergone and endured.
