Chaibia Talal

Chaibia Talal was a Moroccan painter born in Chtouka, a small village near El Jadida, Morocco in 1929. Chaibia Talal was married at the age of 13, before having a son, and become a widow at 15 years old. She was influenced by works of artists from the CoBrA painting movement. Chaibia Talal died on April 4th 2004 aged 74 years.

In 1966, her pieces were shown with success at the Goethe Institut in Casablanca. Afterwards, she participated in important art brut exhibitions. Several people emphasised the closeness of her works to the Cobra group, and it is said that one day Guillaume Cornelis van Beverloo dropped to his knees before her paintings. However, in Morocco the reception of her works was quite ambivalent. In the 1960s, the mostly male leaders of Moroccan artistic movements rejected her paintings, stating that they contributed to the underdeveloped image of Morocco.
