About the book:

For the first time, this publication brings together the whole oeuvre of Yassine Balbzioui, one of the most interesting contemporary artists, based in Morocco. The diversity of his works spans from painting and watercolours to performance works, porcelain and tapestry. A number of texts written by Raimi Gbadamosi, Farouk El Maarouf, Sarah Dornhof, Sophie Eliot, Matteo Rubbi and others reflect on these different media, which are all manifestations of Yassine Balbzioui’s sparkling creativity.

Yassine Balbzioui is a Moroccan multidisciplinary artist. He holds several diplomas from the School of Fine Arts of Casablanca (Morocco), the Academy of Fine Arts of Bordeaux (France) and the University of Berkeley, California (USA). In 2018, he was selected for the 12th Biennial of Dakar (Senegal). Yassine Balbzioui has exhibited all over the world: Paris at the Institut du Monde Arab for the panorama exhibition “Contemporary Morocco”), Morocco (Casablanca, Rabat, Essaouira), Germany (Bayreuth, Stuttgart, Berlin), the Netherlands (Amsterdam), Mexico, Italy (Cagliari, Sardinia, Milan), Spain and Mali.
