Assia Bennani is a Moroccan contemporary painter and designer based in London.
Her semi-figurative paintings, out of time and space are a celebration of diversity. She sees her art journey like a fruitful world where cultures, traditions and innovations happily find each other.
In a world that tends to be more and more polarised, she likes to create visual bridges between different realities, cultures and time frames.
Assia grew up in Casablanca, spent the last 20 years between Paris, Hong Kong and London where she lives today.
Each one of those places has left a mark on her own identity; through painting she explores how these different influences can gracefully blend together, just like they gently flow within herself.
She uses mostly acrylic paint but enjoys other medium like ink, gouache or oil paint.
Her paintings are an invitation to slow down and in her more recent series “Reclaim dreaming”, she invites us to question the place left to dream and imagination in our modern lives.
