A multidisciplinary artist who took his name from a character in a cartoon book, Kalamour has been passionate about drawing, photography, painting and music since his youth. He became more involved in fine art after a completing a diploma in Visual Arts. During 5 years of study at the Conservatoire his focus started drifting towards digital music and videoart.

Interested in video art and video installations, Kalamour has received many awards for his experimental video projections at the Festival of Video Arts in Casablanca and the Trivia Festival in Portugal.

Kalamour is also a sculptor, working in wood, clay and even snow, the latter particularly important in his work in ephemeral art. His talent in this domain drew critical attention in the festival of snow sculpture in Quebec.

He is currently taking part in Jidar Festival of Street Art in Rabat for the second year in a row.
