Rachid Kallamni was born and raised in NYC to Moroccan immigrant parents, and has always drawn inspiration from the dichotomy of Moroccan and New York culture. Kallamni employs a conceptual style of art he calls Mazism (pronounced maze-ism), which Is characterized as a basic problem solving exercise through the utilization of mazes.
My art is often about choosing a route or path that is part of our everyday life and society. Sometimes these paths are complicated, but eventually you find your way – or perhaps you don’t and choose to give up at a dead end, or not even start. But there’s always a route to the solution – nothing is insoluble.
