The artist Amraoui Chlag: marginal, did you say?
By Zoubir Khelaifia
His inspiring muse is the ancestral land. It attaches viscerally him whose talent is matched art that euphoria when he begins to narrate to his canvas, brush in hand, aridity and severity of Aures, his native region . “Douar is myself, this is my school, and it will remain there for all my life, “he likes to say in his native language.
This language he mastered and is Originally a mishap he talks today with the stigma at the bottom of his soul: “I received a slap because I responded by Chaoui, the only language I knew at the time, my teacher asked me the profession of my father. “This slap was so strong that he still remembers.
The renowned artist is called international Chlag Amraoui. He was born in 1969 in Tifrène (Chaoui caves in the region N’gaous. He was born in the heart of the Aures, in Douar surrounded by mountains where nature subjugates both its severity by its enchanting beauty. Rural that is, he finds himself N’gaous, a town which he keeps lasting memories.
“For the first time, I discovered what was behind the mountains that surround my village. I found myself in a world that was completely foreign to me, “recalls Chlag on your
His first “infancy” in the painting, he takes his mother and his father. then He had a penchant for colors. His first source inspiration: rugs and pottery made ??by . his mother “When I was little, I helped my mother to extend aurésiens carpet I kept contemplating. wonderful shapes and colors used My father, his. hand carved forms to animals rampaged gardens flee.
“In addition to these two sources of inspiration, emulation is born between him and his older brother, designer of his condition. “I stole a box oil painting that belonged to my teacher. then I started to paint landscapes in my village, “says Chlag says that his grandfather was greatly expressed interest in these paintings, who
Forged in the harshness of life!
From there was born this penchant for painting that will later Amraoui of an artist of international stature. Life has also forged him that day was 12 km on foot to go to college. Despite the endurance and suffering, not least Hamid continues to be interested in painting it is especially encouraged by his teachers, Ms. Aziz and Mahmoud Djohra Mekhloufi. In a sort of friendship infallible, painting and Chlag not leave more.
A relationship passionate. breathe Him art, and painting makes this love him faithfully. bachelor After his failure, the child of the Aures, the image of his generation, pass
several competitions. It begins by entering the School of Fine Arts in 1987 Batna, where for three years he consolidated his knowledge of painting. From this passage are born from friendships with other artists like Abdessemed, later became a painter artist of international stature, and many others who have also made ??progress in this area. He cites among others the late Allam Ammar whose works remained in posterity.
Pleasure knowledge His thirst to learn led in 1991 to the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Algiers, where he specialized in sculpture, but this passage is stealth:. “At one point, I felt that the sculptors distort things which, in my opinion, already carved. This is what made ??me come back to the painting, “says Chlag. Actually, he returned to his first love, nature, landscape and especially the stone which later became the Gordian knot of all his works: “I am very attached to nature and landscape rocky my hometown I was able to develop an artistic and philosophical language through. and stone.
” This is a turning point in the artistic life of Amraoui who rightly considers that the stone is a timeless element: “The evidence, all civilizations have memorized their history in stone” is . he keeps repeating the step is taken and Chlag now specializes in rock engravings in the Tassili and the Aures which, for him, are all one. universe “The rock carvings are a prehistoric open-air museum.
” The last stand in this world, Our artist has found answers to all the questions that have always tapped her mind. A new page opens and Chlag left Algiers in search of itself, far from the cities where artificial displaces natural. Looking as other lands where his art would be considered at its fair value. But before leaving, he signed some sort of honor baroud, resulted in several exhibitions in the University of Bouzaréah, those of Constantine and Oum El-Bouaghi and finally the seat Aures El- Kahina. He soon realized that his work does not find a buyer in the country. Reason why he decided to go away from the misunderstanding. It is often also surprised to think that if he had to choose between heaven and exile, he would opt for the second solution.
Tunisia will be a drop point. begins a new path for the marginal very quick to slam everything to start a new life. Amraoui refuses degradation. It is a pride that sometimes borders on the ridiculous: “I rented a studio in Sidi Bou Said, a suburb tunisoise where I met Nacer Boudjou, journalist and artist who now lives in Belgium. He told me about El Teatro, the equivalent of Mama Algiers, and Mahmoud Shibli, gallery and artist photographer. “Once contact is made, the latter, looking at my paintings, accepted the idea of the exhibit in the gallery My first exhibition in this country. entitled “Tifrène, Tassili revisited.” What followed then several other shows including “Imazighen Blues.” Very sought by the press there, gaining notoriety Chlag.
Several newspapers have praised this artist out of nowhere. He returned to Algeria, just to relax. Tassili, my passion he discovered the Tassili vast desert which his admiration limitless. “I started backpacking through the desert that gradually I discovered. I put all my resources for the benefit of this discovery for me is the most beautiful of my life. “For five years, the artist isolates to paint paintings on sand dunes. But once its work is completed, he returned to Tunisia leaving all his paintings in Algeria.
“Once in this country, I paint what I keep in my being,” says Amraoui who have very bad memories of his exhibition at the Palace of Culture when without any reason, his paintings have been removed. “I have not even sought the reasons for this action, because the answer I know from my childhood .
Hopefully these attitudes will change one day.
” In 2005, he took his inseparable bag and sets out to conquer the art of other cultures and other attitudes. He landed in Montreal. With its Tunisian experience it will soon feel. In 2006 he held his first exhibition “Where is the world?” in moose country. He went on to several other solo and group exhibitions. His works are fascinating to the point that is too often sought .
Moreover, it will explain in a few days Cherbrouk and Niagara University in Ottawa. In this country, he found respect and consideration for both humans as culture. But it does not matter s ‘there permanently as he vows to his country an immeasurable love, excessive.
Though his wife and daughter, Daya and Numidia, live, Algeria is irreplaceable for him. Chlag went back to Canada after the meeting. It has lost none of its vitality, the smile still on his face and he never keeps launching words in their native language even if those around him do not understand anything. As if waiting for another slap but this one more friendly than he received when he was a kid. Z. K
