MOURAD ELLOUMI, born on the 27th – 6 – 1961, graduated from the National Institute of Art, Architecture and Urbanism of Tunis in 1986. He has been passionate about cinema, art and literature from an early age. He regularly participates in cultural events and especially the training of young people in painting clubs. Between two short rewarding experiences, one as the artistic director of a publishing house and press (Tourist Gazette) and the other as the responsible for his own communication box (Fine Art) ,he landed in 1988 in the world of education and dedicated himself to the education of fine arts in order to contribute to the development of freedom of expression and the creativity project at school. Thus he cultivated his passion for painting and made several solo and group exhibitions between 1992 and 2000 (Sidi Bou Said Museum, Gallery khayachi La Marsa, cultural center abdeaziz Djemail, cultural center el Menzah ….). His commitment to freedom of expression and the human rights deprived him for several years from participating in official exhibitions under the old totalitarian regime. In the aftermath of the “Arab Spring” the breath of freedom consolidates his career of an engaged artist .His recent thinking fits in this context and leads him to the exercise of a research that meets the foundations of a new plastic writing. The project of these recent achievements entitled “Synergy” is a plea to the manifesto of the new “Sure realism”.
