Taher JAOUI

BIOGRAPHY

 

Born in 1978 in Tunis, Taher Jaoui graduated from the Sorbonne University in Paris in 2007. Jaoui studied sciences before taking the plunge into his artistic career in 2013, initially making collages from old photographs. His works are part of many private and public collections in Europe, Middle East, Asia and United States.

TECHNIQUE

 

Influenced by Graffiti Art, Street Art, African Primitive Art, cartoons, as well as the philosophy and attitude of Abstract Expressionism, the artist produces his work following a creative process based upon his intuition and unconscious. Taher Jaoui’s paintings are rich assemblages of layered forms, vibrant colors, expressive gestures, and mathematic signs and formulas. Jaoui creates this captivating and labor-intensive work with an idea of continuing the legacy of Abstract Expressionism.

Through a series of spontaneous movements, directly inspired by the way canvas responds to layers of paint and gestures applied to it, Jaoui compares his work to a dance routine with a familiar partner.

The artist lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
