Hassan Hajjaj is a contemporary Moroccan artist known for his photography, printed fabrics, and films. Known as the “Andy Warhol of Marrakech” Hassan is very much a child of the pop art generation. Using portraiture (photography and video), installation, sculpture, and performance, Hajjaj aims to seduce the viewer whilst confronting culture-specific beliefs and values. His multi-layered works fuse traditional and contemporary North African culture with familiar Western imagery and iconography through appropriation and adaptation. Today, Hajjaj’s works are held in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Lazaar Foundation in Tunisia, among others. Born in Larache, Morocco and lives between Marrakech, Morocco and London, UK.
A solo exhibition of Hajjaj's VOGUE, The Arab Issue is currently on view at Fotografiska New York. Check out his latest work at My Rockstars at Yossi Milo Gallery in NYC.
