I was born in France and grew up in Morocco. I received a BA in Interior Architecture in Lyon, France. I moved to London in 2014 to study for a Master's degree in Interior and Spatial Design at UAL - Chelsea College of Art. I continue to work as an interior architect and independent artist in the city.
Growing up in the vibrant surroundings of Morocco has influenced my creative approach. Researching colour combinations and developing palettes is a significant part of my process. My background as an interior architect has shaped my passion for abstract geometry and composition. My goal is to combine these elements into a graphic visual language that is universally understandable.
I’m inspired by the philosopher Michel Foucault’s notion of ‘Heterotopia’ or ‘in-between spaces’. My intent through my collages is to playfully explore our relationship with real and virtual spaces. The simultaneous occupation of spaces, physically and mentally. Hence, two states of being. A conceptual combination of architectural, sturdy surroundings and dream-like, surreal aesthetics.
My preferred medium is a combination of photography and digital collage using giclee prints in limited editions.
