Born : 1924 in Marrakech.

Mohamed Ben Allal is one of the very first naive painters in Morocco initiated into painting alongside Jacques Azéma. Born in 1924 in Marrakech, this self-taught artist draws his thematic repertoire from the world of storytellers in the Jamaa El Fna square.
The chromatic palette chosen by the artist echoes the colors of the southern landscapes from which he draws his inspiration.
Ben Allal’s works are daily representations and an invitation into the intimacy of Moroccan society in its simplest form.
The artist’s compositions have been very successful both on the Moroccan scene and beyond national borders.
