I am a Tunisian artist based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. My life is between banking and art. Banking surely feeds the stomach but not the soul, so i turn to art. I spent my childhood crisscrossing between 3 countries: Tunisia, France and Lebanon. I settled in Dubai in 2003.
I wrote my first book of french poems at 25. All my poetry is written in french but i would love to translate it some day.
I continued writing poems since then, and i published in total 6 books all part of the Poètes des Cinq Continents collection by Les Editions L’Harmattan in Paris.
I started painting my first canvasses in 2010, mostly abstract and fractal portraits where I try to paint the emotion of the characters.
In a world governed by external appearances, an expression on a face is a unique reflection of inner light, a word from the soul. I think painting can help uncover the soul just like poetry or photography does.
My latest news is the release of a french dystopian novel which i wrote between 2015 and 2020, entitled “Calcium” and which is a story about love and loss.
