MO BAALA

The school of life, reading, cinema, music, meetings, philosophy, traditional arts and handicrafts from Morocco, Africa and elsewhere … His childhood and youth in the heart of the souks & bazaars of his city: Taroudant, followed later by those of Marrakech and of course his great walks across Morocco have formed the essence of his intensive artistic and creative education.
Mo Baala uses drawing, painting, graffiti and collage in a non-discriminatory way. He creates installations, in which he performs poetic and musical performances, he practices land art, sculpture, explores photography, is an adept of action painting, street art and frescoes; recycling, music and poetry occupy a prime place in his artistic practice …
Since February 2016 and his dazzling emergence on the art scene on the occasion of the MB6 Marrakech Biennale 6, with 2 partner projects, Mo Baala has participated in many exhibitions and international art fairs.
