Safa Attyaoui is a self taught, visual artist based in Tunis. She works with acrylic and ink pen to draw attention to the infinite relationships that link humans to their environment. Her work is centred around the spiritual experience, the inter-relationships trace, identity and storytelling. Attentive to physical encounters, Attyaoui draws the object of her creations from her experiences and uses characters to deconstruct and reconstruct the physical world. In 2020, she created her first short animation movie around the lockdown experience.

Attyaoui has participated in several artist’s residencies in Tunisia and France, during which she explored different materials and used drawing as a narrative tool to reveal emotional sensitivity in personal life experiences.

The artist’s work has been shown in several group exhibitions in Tunis, including Utopia, 100 Years of the Bauhaus, at Dar lasram, ‘... entrelacés’ at the Safia Farhat Museum, and Pour l’amour de l’art at the French Institute. She also exhibited in the exhibition Minimum Standards in Bari, Italy. In March 2020, her first solo exhibition Revealing Lines took place in the Chapel of Saint Monique at the IHEC in Carthage.
