PASS ON THE FLAME’ is an art charity project that focuses on preservation of culture and heritage through creativity. By engaging contemporary artists with a token of the past from another country it asks for their reflection on their own identity.

Eight international leading contemprary artists have joined this initiative founded by the ABURY Foundation where Moroccan Berberbags become canvases for a new works of art. The "PASS ON THE FLAME" art pieces will be auctioned with all proceeds going to support the ABURY Foundation Literacy School in the Atlas Mountains, Morocco.


Remi Rough

His art began on walls and trains in South London in 1984; today it has been exhibited in cities such as Miami, Newcastle, Berlin and New York. A respected train writer, Remi has also played a significant part in the development of ‘abstract graffiti’, a term that seems far too clinical to describe the accomplishments of his work, which has always been about the interplay of colour and shape.

His colour palette – and it seems to include an infinite range of shades and combinations – is worked out through deceptively simple arrangements of lines and angles that bring colours into unexpected encounters with each other. Much of this has been done on canvasses large and small, bringing the movement and style of train writing, condensed to its essential ingredients of line and colour, into the space of the gallery.

As part of the collective Agents of Change, Remi has also been re­imagining public spaces, whether in an abandoned ‘ghost village’ in Scotland, now transformed into a massive outdoor gallery, or on the exterior of the Megaro Hotel in the centre of London, offering passersby the sight of a new and dramatic mural five storeys high.

This Berber Bag is being exhibited as part of this year's Marakesh Biennale and will be ready for shipping on the 20th of May 2016. We thank you for your understanding.
