Mous Lamrabat destroys the rules of an imaginary to write about new ones through a unique style that blends Western symbols with Moroccan imagery. Combining love with humour, his images convey messages of respect, acceptance and dialogue between cultures.
After studying interior design, Mous decided to devote himself entirely to the production of images and motivated his choice in this way:
“This is the beauty of photography. I love being creative every day. The only “negative” thing is that your brain is trained to work on extra shifts, so it never stops. When I go to bed, it takes me a long time to turn it off”.
The artist has Arab roots, although he grew up in Belgium, often finding himself in the thorny position of having to give up part of his identity.
Do you really have to choose?
The answer is not always automatic but often suffered: through photography Mous managed to reconcile his cultural roots, creating a world made of oxymorons, amazement and freedom, that kind of freedom that only art can give. Strange and ambiguous characters become fascinating emblems and mirror of a multiracial society, which looks to the future with freshness and positivity, transforming the unusual into the unique.
