L'artiste Fattah Bellali
A Moroccan, originaly from Marakech, a city of civilization and art, Abdelfattah Belali is an inspired visual artist seeking a middle ground between scientific research and creativity.
As a result, his work perfectly combines scientific elements with artistic ones, attempting a symbiosis of the arts, philosophy, and the sciences.
Investing a lifetime of research of origins and evolution of symbols and writings, he first made several expeditions in the confines of the desert to observe rock engravings testifying to the prehistoric ages of mankind.This quest of the creative “researcher” Abdelfattah Belali was not limited to only rock engravings, but went further through the exploration of symbols and ancient writings. This exploration went from hieroglyphics and cuniform writings, to proto-sinaitic and the phoenician alphabet as well as its variations, all which have evolved today into the modern alphabets seen in Arabic, Amazigh, Greek or Latin.
By way of conclusion, each of Abdelfattah Belali’s works can be considered as a creative ourney taking us to the dawn of mankind, where one can truly witness the evolution of writing and the growing complexity of human communication skills.
