Pattern IS Africa

I am in love with African pattern! The choice colours are limitless and you can see strong influence of geometric shapes in all African pattern design. I think it is therefore appropriate to start off with Hassan Hajjaj, who was born in Morocco. Hajjaj is a self-taught and thoroughly versatile artist whose work includes portraiture, installation, performance, fashion, and interior design, including furniture made from recycled utilitarian objects from North Africa, such as upturned Coca-Cola crates as stools and aluminum cans turned into lamps. His photography comments on the fusion between tradition and popular culture.
