This artwork is part of a series of acrylic on canvas, named “Zouak”. It is an exploration on the subject of identity and multiculturalism. The last two decades, I have had the chance to live in different parts of the world, from Morocco where I grew up to Asia and then Europe. Each place has left a mark. In this painting, I explore times, spaces and cultures. The viewer is invited to travel in a new dimension where all those elements will gracefully blend. An eternal quest for calming harmony between layers of colours, textures and patterns. With my art, I aim to explore the complex topic of identity, how it evolves and grows through multicultural experiences. A fruitful journey where cultures, traditions and innovations happily find each other, a celebration of diversity and differences. All patterns are hand-painted, the meditative aspect of this practice invite the viewer to contemplate and slow-down. The background pattern is an inspired moroccan pattern that we call “Zouak” in Arabic. We usually find them as an ornement on ceramics but here I enjoyed revitalize this pattern by destructure and play with it in the composition. The textured and transparent layers are a more organic and spontaneous process. I enjoyed both of these practices, they might seems paradoxal but just like in life, they interact, play and finally find balance & harmony.

Assia Bennani is an artist and designer based in London. Her semi-figurative paintings are a space of exploration where she aims to create visual bridges between different realities, cultures and time frames in a dreamlike atmosphere. She mostly uses acrylic paint but enjoys other mediums like ink, gouache or oil paint. Assia takes inspiration from her multicultural journey, memories, daily scenes and architectural details around her. She seeks to capture those quiet but moving moments that shape us. In this precious space of freedom, figuration will sometimes play with abstraction, vibrant colours converse with muted ones and rough textures with delicates details. She enjoys translating the contrasts and paradoxes that we often meet in our everyday lives through painting. They are part of us and contribute to the diversity and nuances of our world. Each painting is an attempt to find a sense of harmony amidst these forces. Born in Morocco, and now based in London, she studied interior design in Paris before working as a mural artist in Hong Kong for 13 years. Her paintings have been featured in global art exhibitions and contemporary art fairs including Art Central, the Asia Contemporary Art show in Hong Kong and The Other Art Fair in London.
