Art Attack! Larbi Cherkaou

I came across this amazing Morocan artist via Moroccan Fine art, an online gallery based in London dedicated to Contemporary Moroccan art. Labi Cherkaoui’s powerful and painterly abstractions explore and emphasise the Arabic script. His paintings mostly oil on canvas in distinct writing patterns are vivid colours are applied to canvas surfaces. There is obviously a visual language the writer aims to translate to his audience. Simple & artistic without being contrived and it all look effortless. Great piece of Art.
