Date of birth: march, 18th 1954 at Meurad, Algeria. I draw and paint since the age of 8. I write poems since the age of 14.
At the University, I studied American and English literature, in English language, and graduated in 1978. In 1974, I started writing in the press as a free lancer journalist, using the French language. From then I started specializing in art criticism.
I started participating in group exhibitions with non-conformist Algerian artists, like Issiakhem and Khadda. In 2005, I showed my drawings in the Museum of Fine arts, Algiers, with Hakkar.
