Artist Khadija El Fahli (1956) is a self-taught painter, paralleling her teaching career with her studio practice. She now lives and works in Casablanca, Morocco.
El Fahli’s paintings capture the quaint charm of her home country in each one of her bright, bustling canvases. Her work ubiquitously takes on a strong architectural approach; the colourful, often box-like shapes are strongly reminiscent of decorated windows, gates, and doors. El Fahli guides us through the streets of Morocco with a familiarity that incites warmth and nostalgia. Each composition forms a rich tapestry of Moroccan culture, preserving stories, traditions and a strong Arabian heritage in the threads of every delicate brush stroke.
