Born in 1976 in Aghbala, Beni Mellal. Hafida Zizi is a self-taught painter. Since her mother introduced her to carpet weaving, she discovered a passion for colors through the dyeing of wool. In time, this passion will blossom.
Mainly encouraged by her brother Rachid ZIZI, a former student of the School of Fine Arts in Casablanca, she really began to paint at the age of 28. Her work is strongly inspired by the works of the late Chaïbia Talal, particularly in her use of colors and her free and “naive” character which rejects academicism and which she can dare anything.
Her works reflect the daily life of Moroccan women of a certain period, that experienced by the artist in her early youth, in a popular environment. We also recognize in his work the influence of two Moroccan painters: Fatima Hassan and Fatna Gbouri. To unveil her work for the first time, Hafida Zizi decided to hold her first personal exhibition in 2011 in her home village: Imilchil. She then exhibited in Casablanca and Marrakech.
Hafida is an example of a revolutionary woman, a self-taught Moroccan painter, recognized worldwide for her work in naive Moroccan art. She’s now based in Ksar Ait Ben Haddou, Ouarzazate, Morocco. Always ready to host you in her art shop and share her experience and passion with you! and ready to inlight your painting workshop vacation in Morocco.
An Amazigh artist who peacefully leads her daily routine in the beautiful Dades Valley was discovered by a Swiss visiting the region. Dazzled by the naive and natural canvases of Fatima Mallal, she suggested that she exhibit on the picture rails of Bernhard Ishan, in Zurich.
Spain, the USA, Bahrain, Holland, Austria, Belgium, and several Moroccan galleries will subsequently see the artist’s paintings hung.
Recently Fatima is also the manager of Monkey Fingers House. Situated in the heart of Dades valley, where also she has her art shop with an inspiring landscape all around. Fatima hosts artists, families, and travelers indoor and outdoor for painting workshops. She is welcoming everyone in Dades valley for this unique art tour in Morocco
Once upon a time… an encounter.
Johanna, the French Painter and Lahcen Mahmoudi, the Moroccan Painter… two styles, the same passion.
United in life as in art, together they realized their dream of creating an unusual artistic space at the gates of the Moroccan desert.
It is on the sand of the Sahara desert that Lahcen Mahmoudi drew his first sketches and it is quite naturally that Art imposed itself on him and that it became his universal expression.
His resolutely abstract painting combines dazzling colors and Arab-Berber symbols.
This lovely couple is welcoming you into the Sahara desert, they are our Moroccan painting tour artists in the dunes of Erg Chebbi.
Born March 3, 1977, in Aghbala (Middle Atlas), Abderrahim Hamza is a multidisciplinary Moroccan artist.
His first exhibition dates back to 1999 in the city of Meknes.
He develops his calligraphic art that the other city sees hatch in its most famous and prestigious spaces where he has taken up residence, after a long career as a performing musician, resulting in nine albums of Amazigh music.
The artist took advantage of opportunities for local and international renown and immersed himself in the creative atmosphere to refine his plastic choices. This is felt a lot in front of his creations; the multiple aesthetic choices that draw on ancestral and common Arab, Andalusian, Jewish and Amazigh cultures only for the truth of its supports and production techniques.
With great constancy and regularity, Hamza unfolds his know-how with this generosity and warmth that make the particularity of his plastic work that everyone knows him.
Abderrahim is our Morocco painting tour artist in Marrakech.
