Tunisian based artist Thameur Mejri is showcasing his art works ‘Eroded Grounds’ at Gallery 1957, Kempinski Hotel. The show which started on March 28th, will end on May 7th 2019. Eroded Grounds explores the image of Tunisian society as perceived by the artist. The most recent works by the young Tunisian artist show progress and a cultivation of his palette. For the young painter, the urgency is very real and it is crucial to create works that are activated, and exist as more than aesthetic or intellectual stimulus.
Born in 1982 in Tunis, Thameur Mejri trained as a painter at the Institute of Fine Arts in Tunis and now lives and work in Nabeul, Tunisia. He currently teaches at the Higher Institute of the Arts & Crafts in Kairouan while completing a PhD in Science and Technology of Arts and continuing to exhibit in Tunisia and internationally.
