Street Art

If the walls have ears, we know that in Casablanca, they wear moles. Tags and wall murals catch the eye, at the turn of an alley of Mers Sultan, or in the heart of the roundabout of Europe. From the old medina to the Boulevard d'Anfa and the hospital district, the talent of the Street Artists is open to everyone. The local scene is in its infancy but some test shots turn into master shots. Whether they are laureates of the School of Fine Arts of Casablanca or international passing on the occasion of Casamouja or Sbagha Bagha, visual artists tell the history of the city through its most characteristic characters. Children, old ladies and street vendors from the imagination of solo or collective artists, they now dress the walls, like the pages of Comics, made in Casablanca.
