In partnership with BMW Middle East, this month’s Art Dubai portrait tells the background story of Moroccan artist Hassan Hajjaj, known for his vivid and uniquely composed portrait photography.
Sometimes referred to as the ‘Andy Warhol of Marrakech’, Hajjaj is very much a child of the pop art generation. His work encompasses many techniques and fields, from designing and producing furniture including lamps, stools and poufs made from recycled North African objects to custom made clothes and photography. The artist lives and works between London, England and Marrakech, Morocco and is represented by The Third Line (Dubai).
Art Dubai Portraits is a film series that provides a short perspective into the lives and workspaces of artists that are connected to the fair through its programming or participating galleries. The Art Dubai Portraits are produced in collaboration with Forward James Filmmakers.
