Farid Belkahia :- MOROCCO

Born in Morocco in 1934. Works and lives in Morocco.

Belkahia transforms traditional Moroccan materials like leather by impregnating them with natural minerals, local dyes and herbs like henna and saffron, and then stretching them into large abstract forms, he draws on magical symbols and rituals to make gigantic abstract signs.
