Taher Jaoui was born in Tunis, Tunisia. In 2007 he graduated from the world re-known Sorbonne University in Paris. He now lives and works between Paris and Berlin. Jaoui’s compositions are built through an intuitive and unconscious process. His inspiration comes from many sources, including cartoons, graffitis, street art, abstract expressionism and primitivism.
Jaoui’s work mixes paintings and drawing in ways that are both abstract and figurative. His colorful compositions stimulate the viewers feelings and imagination and let them build their own interpretation. Jaoui attractively combines a full palette of color and texture, using oil, enamel, spray paint and charcoal on canvas. Jaoui is represented by galleries in London, Tel Aviv, Tunis, Dubai. His works prominently figure in numerous private collections in Europe and the Middle-East.
