Yazid Oulab

Born in: 1958



Yazid Oulab was born in 1958 in Constantine, Algeria.
His father was a mechanic, his mother a French teacher, and he is the nephew of writer Kateb Yacine.

As a teenager, he was in contact with the intellectual scene in his uncle’s home. At the age of 22 he decided to study art and was accepted at the Beaux-Arts School in Algiers. Almost 6 years later, he moved to Marseilles and he was accepted at the Luminy Art School. He worked on construction sites in order to pay his studies, and he became familiar with techniques that helped him a lot in his practice.

In 2008, he was featured in the exhibition Les Traces du Sacré (“Traces of the Sacred”) at the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Pompidou, and he was a resident at the Calder studio from February to July 2009. This year, he has been chosen to inaugurate the new headquarters of the FRAC PACA in Marseille, with the occasion of Marseille’s year as a European Capital of Culture.
