Amich, Mohamed also called Abdelwahed
Tunisian, 20th century, male.
Active in France since 1964.
Painter, engraver. Figure compositions, genre scenes, scenes with figures. Theatre decoration, designs for stained glass and for tapestries.
Mohamed Amich paints pictures of a Tunisia characterised by its traditions, festivals and crafts. Using a particularly wealthy range of colours, he construes and composes his works according to principal sketches and spatial structures, using a systematic approach stemming from Cubism via the teaching or example of André Lhote.
He is a member of the Salon de la Societé Nationale des Beaux-Arts and of the Salon des Artistes Indépendants, and associate member of the Salon des Artistes. He has also shown his works in solo exhibitions in various cities, including: in Tunis in 1962, 1964, 1985 and 1986; in Madrid in 1963; in Paris in 1975, 1979, and every year since 1985, particularly at the Centre Culturel Algérien in 1990; in Munich in 1987.
