  • RACHID HANBALI was born in 1970 in Sidi Ifni, Morocco. He attended the  School of Fine Arts  in Tétouan, Morocco, and  the University of  Fine Arts, Granada, Spain. He regards Spain as his second home, having spent almost half his life on the Iberian Peninsula.

  • He has held collective and individual exhibitions in a number of countries including the UK, the USA, Canada, Spain, Morocco and China.
  • in 2009, at Beijing's International Festival of Contemporary Art he recieved the Creativity Award from the Ministry of Culture of China for his painting 'Moroccan Horsemen Galloping'. At the end of 2014 he was honoured to be selected by the prestigious Royal Institute of Oil Painters in London to participate in their Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries  in Central London., and he was selected again to exhibit at the 2015 exhibition which was held at the Mall Galleries in London.
  • He is currently living and working in Spain with his English wife Helen and their young son.  They enjoy extended breaks at their villa in Brazil and  spend a part of each year in London.
  • Hanbali’s paintings often  refer to Morocco’s landscapes and its people. In his atmospheric depictions he retains light and colour, expressing an emotional response to the subject and his inner world. 
  • With his perfectly mastered brushwork Hanbali creates shifting patterns of the natural scene, a portal for an exploration of the sublime. His iconic pictorial presentations tell of his affection for Moroccan and European splendour.
