Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, collage on Canvas.

I lived in Marrakech for 5 years from 7 to 12 years old and the Place Djemaa el fnaa (located 10 minutes away from where i used to live and which is supposedly the busiest square in Africa) never ceased to entertain us as children with its peddlers of all kinds, snake charmers and other exotic performers. What mesmerized me the most when i came back, last summer, was the never ending crowd, the bright undulating flowing silhouettes in a constant state of flux...I used collaged bits of paper and newspaper to enhance the abstracted tapestry effect of the crowd seen from afar. I chose warm reds, orange and pinks as an hommage to the "Red City".
