Jaouad BENTAMA

Biography

The Jah (his nickname) started painting at the age of 11 with Monsieur Pierrot, his “scary neighbor”. He dropped out of school to start a career as a painter, but couldn't enter the Beaux Arts schools; he then decided to move to New York, where he currently resides, works and pursues his dream.

Technique

His art revolves around the pain he endured as a child and young adult, reminiscing of his troubled early years. It embodies a mix of emotions from love to hate, life to death. He uses mixed media (acrylic paint, canvases) and unanimous everyday objects which he brings to life through his art.
