Gnawa Melk Bleu

Gnawa Melk Bleu


The artwork for this print is an abstract play on the spirits that are evoked during a "Lila". There are 7 colors, incense, rhythm and dance that are used for each ritual; I tried to loosely draw on the ritual whilst also calling on the rhythm of the music, instruments, and symbols unique to the culture.

Inspired by the healing ceremony of rebirth and rejuvenation; I tried to chanel aspects of the Gnawa culture fusing the movement of dances, rhythm of the repetitive sound as it is transported through the instruments, the fashion, embroidered flowers the musicians wear, belts and hats adorned with cowrie shells.

The colors- soothing, healing, comforting- 100% wool large scarf, made in Italy
