The Illustration is reproduced in a limited edition of 30 prints, and part of a series of 10 different illustrations by established and up and coming illustrators and artists.
Born (1991) and raised in Tunis, Noura Abdelhafidh graduated in Architecture in 2016, at the Ecole Nationale d'Architecture et d’Urbanisme ENAU Tunis (Tunisia), with a specific dissertation about the design of an affordable student housing complex.
She volunteered for several Art and social events in Tunis such as Dream City 2010, 2013 and 2015. In 2015 she collaborated at the World social Forum WSF Tunis. In 2017 she moved to Malta. She has always been actively interested in the role of design/art/architecture in articulating social changes and guaranteeing human rights. Currently she is employed as a Junior Architect with Acollective and is also chairperson of the Malta-based NGO Hal Far Outreach HFO.
My background in architecture influences my drawings, particularly this one. I have always seen the Mill as a free standing, compact, simple, uncanny and cute object in the middle of the urban context of that particular road in Birkirkara. In my drawings I unconsciously tend to simplify what I see or imagine through a rational inventory of structural lines. I also tend to segment particular marks that strike me at the moment of drawing. I like the playful aspect of illustration, where the topic or scene, can give the opportunity to be childish and inaccurate, as well as to express a concern; an idea or an anecdote I believe is worth being shared.
