Driss Marbou  [ September, 2010 ]
Driss Marbou

Driss Marbou was born in Fes and grew up in Sefrou Morocco. Sefrou is a small city best known for its annual cherry festival.

In the summer of 1987, through a program organized by AMIDEAST and funded by YMCA, Driss took part of a group of young Moroccans who came to the US to work as camp counselors. In 1989, shortly after his graduation from University Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah, Fes with a B.A. in English Literature, Driss relocated to the United States.

In 1999 Driss completed his graduate studies and earned his Masters degree in Telecommunications from Iona College in New Rochelle, NY. Driss currently works in Connecticut at Tangoe ( www.tangoe.com ) as a Service Delivery client specialist helping domestic and global organizations manage, understand, and control their fixed and mobile communications assets and costs.

Driss has a passion for visual art expression and sporadically, in his spare time, enjoys creating oil and acrylic paintings as well as Arabic calligraphy whether on traditional media such as Oils and Acrylics on canvas or digital media such as Adobe Creative Suite applications and Wacom tablet. Through his artwork, Driss tries to capture some of those splendid and exquisite Moroccan visual experiences lavish with Mediterranean vibrant colors and infinite moorish geometrical shapes. Driss is an evolving self taught artist and some of his artworks can be viewed at www.drissmarbou.com

In the spirit of promoting the Moroccan culture in general and the Moroccan Visual Arts in particular, Driss launched a family oriented online portal ( www.atlasvisualarts.org ) for visual artists at all levels, professional or casual, to showcase and market their artworks. One of the objectives is to allow for Moroccan artists to extend their artistic creativity to audiences in the US and vice versa.

Membership at Atlas Visual Arts is currently FREE of charge. The Moroccan and American communities are encouraged to take advantage of these free services.
