Nadia Echiguer: “A home without art is a home without soul”. These wise words were spoken to Nadia by her grandfather and are the inspiration behind Moroccan Fine Art.
Growing up in Rabat, the capital of Morocco, she was surrounded by creative people, especially her father, a photographer, and her aunt, a painter. She remembers being mesmerised by stories of celebrated artists like Delacroix, Matisse and Majorelle when travelling through Morocco, a world where time stood still.
In 2007 when she moved to London, and started a family she recalled her grandfather’s words and decorated her home with art works given by her family. Often these works were by artists her family knew well and were friends with.
Friends and visitor regardless of their cultural background were intrigued by the originality, diversity and colour intensity of the paintings in her personal collection. This encouraged Nadia to offer Moroccan art for sale and her home became an exciting secret gallery.
With the launch of www.moroccanfineart.com her new online gallery she hopes to promote the diverse artistic talent emerging from Morocco to a wider audience, both in the UK and internationally.
