Born in 1987 in Casablanca, Soukaïna Aziz El Idrissi lives and works as a visual artist and surface designer in Casablanca, Morocco. She studied in London at the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design where she procured a BA (Hons) in Textile Design specialized in weave and later went on to get an MA in Design, Craftsmanship and Entrepreneurship at Northumbria University.   Soukaïna spent 9 years (2005 – 2014) in London where she studied, taught and participated in several artistic events, seminars and symposiums. For the past 8 years she has extended her research on plastic waste as a social phenomenon. She explores all the possibilities this material, deemed waste, has to offer with the aim to interrogate its value of use and the perception one has of it. A large range of techniques, often experimental, are used to comprehend and present the material in a new light. Soukaïna Aziz El Idrissi has participated in numerous exhibitions in Morocco and the UK: Second Life in 2018 at the MACAAL, FEMMES: Artistes Marocaines de la Modernité 1960 -2016 in 2017, Rupture in 2016, Billboard Festival and Harmonia in 2015, Crossways/ Al Multaqa in 2013, Calibrated Composition in 2012 and Weaving the Threads of Livelihood in 2011. Thinkart dedicates a monographic exhibition, Chemistry’s Greatest Achievement, in November 2015 in Casablanca. Soukaïna Aziz El Idrissi is also co-founder and general secretary of the Zero Zbel NGO.
