Hassan Echair is born in 1964, in Rommani, Morocco. He lives and works in Tetouan, Morocco. He was formed at Tetouan’s School of Fine Arts, but also in France (Amiens and Angers).
The artist works on a great diversity of mediums, such as paper, canvas or wood. But apart from those conventional techniques, Echair also likes to imagine new possibilities and original technics. His area of expressions is much wider; he invents his own language and uses his own materials : stones, cables, strings,… Those materials are literally intertwined and ultimately represent signs, global signs and individuals.
The phenomenology and the nature of this change, of this harmonious association of materials, create a certain “aesthetic of hospitality”. Hassan Echair aims at conveying a feeling of ephemeral state.
