Assia Bennani

Assia Bennani is a moroccan painter artist based in London.
She grew up in Casablanca and moved to Paris at age 18 to study interior design at the LISAA School of Paris Eager to explore different universes, Assia spent several years navigating between interior design, children’s book illustrations and mural art. After moving to Hong Kong in 2007 where she spent 13 years, Assia’s identity as an artist began to take shape and express itself. Her painting work is made of a mosaic of textures & patterns, reflecting her multi-cultural background and contemplative personality. Each place where she lived has left a mark and through painting, she explore times, spaces and cultures. The viewer is invited to travel in a new dimension where all those elements will gracefully blend. 
She aims to explore the complex topic of identity, how it evolves and grows through multicultural experiences. A fruitful journey where cultures, traditions and innovations happily find each other, a celebration of diversity and differences. Assia's paintings are formed with layers and layers of reworking, mixing figurative and rigorous details with evanescent, calming textured compositions. Her creative process is quite intuitive. The exploration through paint is led by a quest towards harmony and flow. She uses mostly acrylic paint, and although she sees her academic training in mural decorative art as a solid starting point, Assia like to use other medium like ink, gouache and oil paint.
