Born in Tunisia, 1978

Currently based in Madrid, Taher Jaoui paintings are rich assemblages of layered forms, vibrant colors, expressive gestures, mathematical signs and formulas. He creates work with an idea of continuing the legacy of abstract expressionism movement from the 50s and 60s, while subsequently inspired by African primitive art and graffiti. He works by combining and layering spray paint, charcoal, chalk, oils and acrylics paint on raw canvas.
