ARTIST STATEMENT

Taher Jaoui’s compositions are built on an intuitive and an unconscious process. He uses different sources of inspiration, spanning from cartoon and graffiti-like drawings to Abstract Expressionism, as well as Primitivism. Jaoui’ s work combines painting and drawing, between abstraction and realism. Through his own personal language he aims to stimulate the viewer’s feelings and imagination and let him build his own interpretation of the work. He often composes with semi-figurative elements, such as heads, legs, eyes or hands. He combines an aggressive use of color and texture with various combinations of oil, enamel, spray paint and charcoal on canvas. Jaoui was born in Tunis, Tunisia and currently lives and works in Berlin. His work is part of several private and public collections around the world.

He is represented by Kremers Gallery (Berlin), Oliver Cole Gallery (Miami), Bivins Gallery (Dallas), Uncommon beauty Gallery (New York), Mika Gallery (New York/Tel Aviv), Opera Gallery (Dubai), Graham Modern and Contemporary (Johannesburg), Jinsan Gallery (Seoul), Banzy Gallery (Beirut) and Smart BA Gallery (Buenos Aires).
