Lives and works in Casablanca, Morocco
Mohammed Arrhioui is a recent honorary graduate from the Casablanca School of Fine Arts in Casablanca, Morocco. His artistic practice is nourished by every-day rituals and acts of life, to question various sociological and psychological themes as well as intense personal reflection. Arrhioui’s graduate body of work is a sincere and deep investigation into suffering and pain in the broader sense.
Arrhioui completed a residency (Labo resilience), in collaboration with the French Institute at Casablanca in 2020 and has participated in several exhibitions and cultural events in Morocco. In late 2022, Arrhioui was awarded the 'National First Prize for Visual Art', organized by 'The Kingdom of Morocco Ministry of Youth, Culture and Communication (Culture Sector)' at Bab Rouah Gallery in Rabat, Morocco, and recently returned as an artist in Residence at the 'Southern African Foundation for Contemporary Art (SAFFCA)' in Brussels, Belgium.
