Taher Jaoui was born in 1978 in Tunis, Tunisia. In 2005 he graduated from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Paris and in 2007 from the world-renown Sorbonne University. He now lives and works in Berlin.
Jaoui's compositions are formed through an intuitive and unconscious process. His inspiration comes from many sources, including abstract expressionism, cartoons, graffiti, street art, and primitivism.
Jaoui's work confuses paintings and drawing in ways that are both abstract and figurative. His vivid compositions stimulate the viewer's emotions and imagination, enabling them to build their interpretation.
Jaoui aesthetically combines a full palette of color and texture, applying oil, enamel, spray paint, and charcoal on canvas. Jaoui is represented by galleries in New York, London, Berlin, Tel Aviv, Tunis, Dubai. His works are prominently featured in numerous private collections in Europe, the Middle-East, Asia, and the USA. Tahers' artwork is met with great success in Art Fairs and other shows.
