JEDDAH: Moroccan fashion designer and artist Karim Adduchi has featured in Forbes’ 2018 list of “30 Under 30” in art and culture for Europe.
Some 300 people are listed in 10 categories, including entertainment, finance, and technology. It features a record number of 34 European states, with entrepreneurs hailing from countries like Belarus and Kosovo.
Amsterdam-based Adduchi was born in Imzouren, Morocco, in 1988. He moved to Barcelona at the age of five. His inability to speak Spanish or Catalan compelled him to turn to drawing as a means of self-expression.
Seeing his talent, his tutors advised him to attend the Institute of Fine Arts in Barcelona. In 2011, he moved to Amsterdam to pursue his education in fashion. Adduchi graduated in 2015 with a collection called “She Knows Why the Caged Bird Sings.”
In 2016, he presented “She Lives Behind the Courtyard.”
“I am extremely honored to be selected by the prestigious Forbes magazine and I think this is only the beginning,” the 29-year-old artist told HuffPost Maroc.
