Aïcha El Beloui

Aïcha El Beloui is a Moroccan Oslo-based illustrator. Trained as an architect, she started her artistic practice in response to a visceral need to express her obsession with citizenship, public spaces, belonging, freedom, and the individual in the Moroccan context. This quest took her through graphic design, photography and illustration: an intuitive juggle between representation, interpretation, and appropriation of the unseen, the unsaid but the still daily undergone and endured. She is currently taking a Master’s Degree in Art and Public Space at The National Academy of the Arts in Oslo.
