Mohamed L’Ghacham, family photos become murals

Mohamed L’Ghacham, le foto di famiglia diventano murales | Collater.al

Mohamed L’Ghacham is a Moroccan artist from Barcelona who paints large murals based on scenes from vintage family photos. Very often using those that are counted among the “photographic incidents”, the artist paints salient scenes typical of family life.

Here the personal and apparently unimportant moments acquire a new meaning and become emotionally resonant for the spectators, even though they have never met the families portrayed. The soft colours in Mohamed’s murals echo the retro tones of the filters in the photographic films.

It is not difficult to identify one of these scenes with those experienced together with one’s family: the individual experience becomes a collective story, which makes us a real community.
