As part of the serie GIOVENTÙ COSMICA we are happy to host this e-gallery project featuring Cité Des Arts artists in residence.

Referencing the original 1980-1984 Italian “Cosmic” subculture and its gut-driven multimedia imagery, this web space is meant for reimagining and fostering what can be considered Cosmic today in visual art, performing art, dance and music.

Studio portraits by photographer Anaïs Horn and stylist Celia Moutawahid.

Omar Mahfoudi – Live drawing


Born in Tangier, Morocco in 1981. Omar studied at the Moulay Youssef Schools in his hometown. Then, after a Bachelor of Plastic Arts, he decided to be completely devoted to painting, looking for a proper expression that frees him from the taboos that assail him from the Moroccan society. His first solo exhibition was in Casablanca art house and in 2010 at Formato Comodo gallery, Madrid, which showed a selection of pictures and videos depicting characters and ways of living in Tangier. In 2008 he won the 2nd Prize at the Film Festival of Young Talents 2009 issued during the Cannes Film Festival for Young Filmmakers.
