    About the artist

    The artist now lives and works between London, England and Marrakech, Morocco.
    1961: Was born in Morocco

    Hassan Hajjaj’s work encompasses many techniques and fields, from designing and producing furniture including lamps, stools, poufs made from recycled North African artifacts such as upturned Coca-Cola crates as stools, road signs turned into tables tops as well as custom made clothes and photography.
    Hajjaj is best known for designing the 'Andy Wahloo' bar-restaurant in Paris. 'Andy Wahloo' acknowledges one of his favourite artists, Andy Warhol, but also at the same time refers to a Parisian slang term meaning 'I have nothing', adopted by Hajjaj as a way of describing his work.

    His latest works have incorporated the language of fashion photography, as well as African studio photography in a series of playful portraits of friends and various other characters from the streets of Marrakesh.
