Rabat – The artistic residency “The Month of Women’s Art ” in United Arab Emirate is hosting Moroccan plastic artist, Laïla Iraki, to exhibit her art as a means of bringing the Emirati public closer to the richness of the Moroccan art scene.
The event is being held at the Abu Dhabi Art Hub in Abu Dhabi, until April 3.
The Abu Dhabi Art Hub is one of the most prestigious cultural platforms for exchanges between international artists. This year, the event chose to celebrate the creativity in contemporary art combined with a feminine touch.
For this reason, Art Hub is presenting “The Month of Women’s Art.” It’s brought together five artists and painters from various backgrounds. These include Moroccan Laila Iraqi, Lithuanians Kristina Bartkute and Henrika Bartkute, Russian Liza Bobkova and Italian Maria Grazia Collini.
Laïla Iraki has experimented with all universal schools of visual arts and touched all styles, from figurative to abstract.
“At first, my work was purely academic, with a representation of the landscapes and historical monuments from Fez, Rabat, Azemmour, and other places in Morocco. I started by working using oil painting, and with time and after taking courses with other painters, I switched to acrylic which is a paint easier to use and dries faster than regular paint since I am always in a hurry to see the results. Now, I started to create my characters and use other techniques,” said Iraki.
To date, her work is marked by simple and sharp forms. She incorporates several materials to create authentic Moroccan contemporary art.
