Taher Jaoui


Taher Jaoui (b. 1978 in Tunis, Tunisia)  currently lives and works between Paris and Berlin. With growing acclaim, his work has been exhibited in various group and solo exhibitions across Europe, Africa, and the USA.

Taher Jaoui compositions are developed on an instinctive and unconscious process. He uses different sources of inspiration, spanning from cartoon and graffiti-like drawings to Abstract Expressionism and Primitivism movements.  Jaoui’ s work fuses painting, drawing, abstraction, and representation. Through a personal language in his compositions, he aims to stimulate the viewer’s feelings and imagination, enabling one to form their interpretations of the picture. His often composes with semi-figurative elements, such as heads, legs, eyes, or hands.  He combines an energetic use of color and texture with various combinations of oil, enamel, spray paint, and charcoal on canvas.
