pop culture influences the hijab with meriem bennani

Like many others, I came across the work of the talented MERIEM BENNANI in an article scribed by  Kat Herriman for The New York Times. My initial interest was struck by the similarities we both seemed to share. For starters and perhaps most obviously, we are both women. Secondly, we are both Moroccan. And finally, we have almost the exact same name (her – Meriem, me – Myriam). After seeing some of Bennani’s work in Ara-B-Less at the Saatchi Gallery last month, I spoke to her about her artistry and the influence of growing up in Morocco. Advertisements
