[IN FRENCH ONLY] Simarek, the artist in exile

An Artmajeur nugget unearthed by CultureSecrets


Simarek is a Tunisian artist exiled in France since 2017. Discover the political approach of his engaged works, during a visit in his studio in the heart of Paris. Polymorphous artist, he will explain his techniques as a graffiti artist, visual artist and painter and share with you his inspirations, his relationship to art and his personal history. In a search for diversification of techniques and styles, he considers each object as a potential support for creation, which leads him for example to produce masks and sculptures for shows by recovering waste.

To know

In 2012, Simarek exhibits for the first time at the Printemps des Arts in Tunis a work that is the subject of scandal among Tunisian religious extremists, forcing him to leave his country. He then went on to exhibit with the Artyshow gallery, and joined the Association of Artists in Exile on his arrival in Paris. It is in the creative space of this unique structure that he will welcome you.

This meeting is part of the series of appointments that CultureSecrets offers in partnership with the online art gallery Artmajeur. This site, translated into 19 languages, has been created to allow contemporary artists to present or sell their works to as many people as possible. Its finely curated collections, its commitment to artists with the cheapest commission on the market and its unique geolocation tool make Artmajeur the 1st online art sales platform in Europe.
