Massinissa Selmani (b.1980, Algiers) lives and works in Tours, France. Graduated from the School of Fine Arts of Tours (2010). His work tries all kinds of experiments that drawing allows. It is characterized by an extreme simplicity – often presenting montages of images and drawings, or short animations in which he mingles humour, irony, and sometimes a sense of revolt. He presented at the 56th Venice Biennale (2015) and received a special mention from the jury. Other awards include tenth winner of the Art Collector Prize, Paris (2016) and the laureate of the SAM Art Projects award (2016). Select exhibitions include the Dakar Biennial (2014); the CCC, Tours, France (2015); the first triennial of Vendôme, France (2015); the Lyon Biennial (2015); the Zachęta National Gallery, Poland (2016); and Selma Feriani Gallery, Tunis (2017). Upcoming exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris.
