CHAYCKH AL AHMAR (THE RED ARTIST)
CHAYCKH AL AHMAR "THE RED ARTIST" /////////// Projet en cours
Intention Shaykh al Ahmar" - which means the „red artist“ - is a character that existed in the 70‘s in the region of Safi / Morocco. He is known for a musical piece entitled "Shaykh al Ahmar". The red artist is an anonymous multidisciplinary artist who created poetic texts, surrealistic drawings, sculptures / pottery and music. During his artistic practice he always kept his anonymity because of his engagement in military service. His specific artistic approach is giving a visual / plastic aspect to his music and texts. In this work I try to contextualize his approach within the actual practice of anonymous artists.
