Be looking for a type of contemporary architecture of the face. Othmane tends both to a visual drawing passage through beings. Prepare for travel by a set of shapes, flesh tones, stories from characters from different cultures, background and living conditions.
He exhibits since 2007, represented by Hajer Azouz, curator and interior designer in Tunis.
He tends to a new reading of figurative art and always pushing further the limits of the representative; his representation is a reflection of the socio-cultural issues of our time.
Othmane Taleb has repeatedly shown his work, particularly in Tunisia, France in Glass Box gallery, the City Hall of Paris, Senegal at the off Dakar Biennale (Bind Contemporary), Switzerland, Morocco.
“In order to truly absorb every detail of the delicately drawn features on the pictures charting the refugees' exodus to Europe, one must get very close to the canvas. The lines are ever-so-lightly drawn in pencil, yet still manage to provide powerful imagery that one would normally only see as snippets on the daily news” .middleeasteye. Lilia Blaise.
His works are in the permanent collections of the Tunisian Government, the Attijari Bank and many collectors in Tunisia and abroad.
