Assia Bennani is a Moroccan contemporary painter and designer based in London.

Her dreamy paintings explore the complex yet universal subjects of identity, multiculturalism and simultaneously our relationship to time and productivity.

She uses mostly acrylic paint but enjoys other mediums like ink, gouache or oil paint.

 

As a contemplative person, Assia takes her inspiration from memories of everyday scenes that move her by their poetry and sometimes simplicity. She grew up in Casablanca and 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. 

 

The painting becomes a space where she layers up time, spaces and emotions, creating through this process a new scene, often an idyllic vision.

She enjoys mixing aesthetics; figuration will sometimes play with abstraction and a rhythm arises from the composition. All aiming to create a calming harmony between layers of colours, texture and patterns.

 

Beside this celebration of diversity, she also invites the viewer to contemplate and slow down. A floating moment in our sometimes too busy contemporary lives.
