The Artist

Ghanmi’s paintings are intense, primal and never risk sentimentality. Resonating vivid, rich Mediterranean colours, Ghanmi expresses his deepest fears, joys and sorrows through his art. Passionate symbolism and raw observation come together to create magnificent paintings saturated with beauty and tension.
Tunisian born in 1979, self-taught artist Ghanmi shied away from studying Fine Art fearing its interference in his creative processes. Instead, Ghanmi studied in Great Britain, pursuing Design in Lancaster and then at Kingston University, London. He soon excelled in the field of branding and practiced with some of the world’s best agencies. In a perfect move of abandon and daring Ghanmi turned his back on commercialism and now creates artwork solely in the form of his paintings. Ghanmi’s biography resides in his paintings.
