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.

Poze (Yann Chatelin)

As part of Casamouja 2019, Yann Chatelin has left his mark on a 216 m2 mural overlooking Boulevard Ghandi. "The idea here is to underline the fragility of man and the strength of writing as a symbol of knowledge. In an ultramodern era, each new technical progress makes humans a little less powerful and moves them away from knowledge. Assisted by new technologies, humans lose their ability to memorize, orient themselves, write, etc. This is represented in this mural by a portrait which disappears, covered with a refined and imposing writing. The person pictured is Gordon Parks, an American photographer, one of the first African American photojournalists to fight the exploitation of African Americans on construction sites in the 1950s. I wanted to pay tribute to him, "said the artist. Adress : Ghandi Boulevard Instagram : @yannchatelin

Amin Brush

The work of the Moroccan artist Amin Brush is a tribute to the older generations, their knowledge and their way of life. The central image represents a man of a certain age wearing a traditional headgear and, in the background a kasbah, as well as a nod to the holy month of Ramadan with the crescent moon and its nocturnal atmosphere. Deeply marked by his culture, Amin Brush develops a style that is both powerful in terms of colors and modern through geometric dynamics and the effects of illusion, depth, and reliefs. Adress : Ghandi Boulevard Instagram : @brushamin

Sitou

In this mural, the Togolese artist Sitou has brought together West African symbols : pearls and cowries, the Burkinabe sun mask and patterns of the bogolan that appear in the background. In the center, he installed a sumptuous female face, a symbol for the artist of living together. "I associated the mirrored face with a chameleon, an African symbol that represents the adaptability of each of us. This wall is a tribute to my country, Togo, but also to the whole region which is on the path of crossing borders, just like Casamouja festival which brought together African artists from various horizons. In this artwork, the shapes represent each identity and the colors symbolize the values associated to each one. As for the lines, they materialize the links that we create every day and even more through events like this festival. The whole wall must be considered as an open book on the diversity and the cultural and social riches of our continent, Africa. " Adress : Ghandi Boulevard Instagram : @sitoumatt

Nofal

In his creations, the Egyptian artist Nofal often celebrates the history of his country and adapts it to the modern style by using characters from the graffiti movement. He develops a street culture inspired by ancient Egypt which is represented by traditional elements with a touch inspired by our time. On this wall, Nofal has chosen to honor the former Queen Hatshepsut, fifth sovereign of the 18th dynasty. We owe her the great Hatshepsut temple and the Hua built on the shores of the Nile in the valley of the Kings of Theba. Around, we recognize the guardians of the Osiris temple. It’s a real tribute to the ancient Egyptian culture that has survived the centuries to continue to inspire us. Adress : Ghandi Boulevard Instagram : @nofal.one

Moh

Strength and traditions inspired the Ghanaian artist Moh and especially a famous Ashanti woman who led her people to fight for freedom. She is dressed in traditional Ankara Kente or Ntoma fabric. Each fabric, by the symbols it uses, refers to one of the ethnic groups present in Ghana: Ashanti, Ga or Dagomba. Each fabric also has a meaning and conveys a message. In the background, golden Adinkra symbols appear which represent unity. Below the Ashanti woman, the artist has depicted an African Sankofa mask that reminds African culture. "For me, the world is changing and, as Africans, we are influenced by other cultures, which sometimes makes us forget our own culture. Invited to participate in Casamouja, I wanted to represent African unity by the symbol Akoma Ntoso which means that "our heart is linked". It means that there is understanding between us and tolerance. The Akonefa symbol illustrates the courage to believe in ourselves and our identity, "said the artist. Adress : Ghandi Boulevard Instagram : @mohawudu

Ser & Krafts

This mural is the result of an artistic collaboration between the Algerian Ser and the Senegalese Krafts. Ser realized a wildstyle graffiti directly inspired by the plant of his native region, Tlemcen, to which are added mint leaves and hibiscus, prickly pears and other harmonious organic forms. For his part, Krafs represented the traditional griot, both guardian of the temple and messenger with a drum that spans all eras. He is the holder of the oral tradition, the art of speaking, of transmitting history in order to prepare us to face the present and the future. All around, the artist illustrated the different elements of this universe with symbols: warriors with Masai Shuka fabric patterns, Egyptian dynasties with the pharaonic necklace and the Ankh cross (the cross of life) referring to spiritual journeys, the Akan people with the Nyame Ye Ohene, symbol of the majesty and supremacy of God. The wooden mask directly refers to African roots, in the form of a lion that evokes the strength of the union. Adress : Ghandi Boulevard Instagram : @kraftsxalil @ser.oner

Socrome

In this mural, mixing realistic techniques, for the portrait, and graphic techniques, for the vegetation, the artist Socrome of @swanastudio depicted a Comorian woman picking a fruit from a tree. The patterns are inspired by "Lesso", a traditional fabric from the Comoros worn by women. On all "Lessos", there are compositions of colored patterns embellished with a sentence or a saying. Faithful to this tradition, the artist added to his mural a Comorian proverb: "Yaheya mdri gudjuo yeza mdjusa", which means "Whoever climbs a tree knows what he is looking for."

ST4 The Project

Thanks’ to the compatibility of their artistic visions, they have developed a unique aesthetic that has led them to participate in various artistic projects in Tunisia and beyond the borders of their country, especially in France, through the Boulevard Paris 13 project, and now in Morocco. « This first experience in Casablanca was exciting. We spent 10 days painting and walking around a city that made us feel right at home. It’s fabulous to realize how similar our two countries are. It’s also exciting to explore the differences. We met a lot of wonderful people and we would like to thank Casamouja for bringing us to Morocco. We hope to come back! » Said Yassin and Sadok.

Zepha

The immense concentric circles of Zepha (Vincent Abadie Hafez) attract the attention of every passers-by in Rachidi square.

Trained in graphic arts, he enriched his practice by devoting himself to learning traditional calligraphic techniques, focusing in particular on the plastic interactions of eastern and western styles. He thus develops a singular visual language through his research on the deconstruction of the letter and the cross-cultural significance of signs which he integrates into abstract and precise compositions. Recognized as one of the founders of urban calligraphy, his monumental works are integrated into the public space of many cities in Europe and Middle East. Adress : Skate Park, Rachidi Place Instagram : @zepha1

OLDR

Oldr, a Moroccan artist from Taza, passionate about art and breakdance, wanted to represent the end of childhood and the difficult transition phase to adulthood using the characters of Belle and Sébastien. We can see a fall but also friends and family symbolized by Belle who keeps a protective eye as if she knew that it is sometimes necessary to suffer to grow. The elements he added (boats, house, tree trunk, bell) are inspired from the cartoon and the vintage car is an element that he places in all his latest artworks.

He exposes faces in their most realistic day, before bringing hypnotic graphics touches ... His mastery of facial expressions, wrinkles, textures and identity touches, pushes him to apply the same work on his frescoes. Faithful to his realistic style, Iramo delivers us through this fresco his very personal vision, that of the relationship, existing between the mother and her child.
