In Ghizlan's unique art, modern and classic styles meet in a vibrant testimony to her Berber and European education.
She uses vivid colours and metallic paints to capture light and the essence of each subject. Illumination from behind gives them a new perspective, even a new meaning.
With this approach, her work interacts with its surroundings in a way reminiscent of the glittering mosaics of the Byzantine Empire, which once stretched as far as coastal Morocco – another merging of ancient and modern.
'Some mysteries, we take pleasure in never discovering; to do so would unveil all the complex beauty of our souls. The art of Ghizlan El Glaoui is one of them.'
Olivier Bolot de Faucogney
