My name is Mohamed ASSALMI, born in 1961 in ERRACHIDIA, south of Morocco.

I have about thirty years of career and have exhibited several times in various regions of the kingdom, from north to south.

I say I’m a painter pretty converted into Impressionism and Figurative: the nature of the Moroccan South with all the impressions that it creates, the magnificence of Arabian horses, fantasia, the feelings of complicity and friendship vented by the characters of the South, these are the major themes of my artistic production.

My artistic language devoid of any emphasis, simple and rich in metaphors, goes straight to the heart. I forged my name, give me a complete artist status thanks to the maturity of my talent, mastery of the art of the knife, the choice of topics and to my daily quest for novel and ideal.

I have developed a personal style marked by the depth and abundance and dedicated to the search for identity conditioned by originality and a homecoming.

The act of painting at home is not an empty word, I know how to exalt the measure with the beauty of my land, crunching a few strokes or brush the natural beauty of simple people who still retain intact their unalterable personality, authenticity and picturesque all that is typically local and worthy of large pallets. My paintings are dreamy atmospheres.

Armed with my sensitivity, my allusive painting highlights a nostalgia that reflects the deep look of Morocco through the movement and the richness of its colors and landscapes. I work on the world of apparent beauty, spirit and art, enriched by way of a singular pictorial experience continually challenged and contemplations taken from an evolutionary reflection. Painter of Impressionism nostalgic, I cleverly mixed chromatic magic and poetry in my paintings that demonstrate my unquestionable talent.

My painting is a subjective interpretation of the wonders and the picturesque magnificence of the Moroccan South, often forgotten and marginalized. I share with the receivers the right to dream and the concern to revisit the places abandoned, by capturing the details the most impressionistic and traces of time through the effects of the paint using the Knife.
