About the artist
Once settled in Marrakech, in this ochre city that has seen generations of calligraphers flourish, Abderrahim Hamza develops his art and quickly invests in some of the most coveted exhibition spaces. While he follows in the footsteps of a great ancestral tradition, the artist also demonstrates openness in his aesthetic choices, drawing inspiration from the shared Arab, Andalusian, Jewish, and Amazigh cultures. Always open to new ideas, he employs techniques and artistic choices marked by a powerful breath of creativity and innovation.
With great consistency and beautiful regularity, Hamza unfolds a skill imbued with generosity and warmth, making this contemporary calligraphy particularly striking.
