Faouzi Laatiris (b. 1958, lives in Martil and works in Tétouan) is a visual artist and, since 1992, a professor at the Institut National des Beaux-Arts de Tétouan. His spare art reflects on the appearances and realities of urban environments and everyday objects. In 2006 with fellow artist Batoul S’Himi in Martil, he founded the art space Espace 150 x 295 cm, which hosts regular exhibitions, workshops, and events. Laatiris’s works have been presented in exhibitions such as Doual’art (Douala), Dak’Art (Dakar), and L’objet désorienté, curated by Jean-Louis Froment at the Musée des Arts Décoratif (Paris).
Sud’Obelisk is a project for public spaces. The first work is installed in Douala, Cameroon in 2007. Curated by Abdellah Karroum and produced by Doual’art in the framework of SUD (Salon Urbain de Douala).
