Biographie

Source : http://www.moroccanfineart.com/artist_list/said-yaghfouri/

Said Yaghfouri was born in 1977 in Beni Mellal and graduated at the High School Lycée des Orangers, Department of Applied Arts. He was a successful teacher in traditional woodcraft before his work was recognized. He lives and works in Beni Mellal and voluntarily teaches at the association Al Mawahib and L’Education Sociale D’ Azilal.

Yaghfouri’s dynamic compositions emerge from architectural frameworks which foreground the interplay of geometrical forms in the spatial field. Squares, rectangles and figurative elements are juxtaposed to create urban pictorial scenes. He applies rhythm to movement and relies on colourful planes to deepen his lively depictions. His unique paintings appear like modern stained glass windows informed by cubist tradition.
