Belgian-Morroccan artist DemaOne brings together in his work such disparate influences as Arabic calligraphy and graffiti art. Resilience Exile Mutation is a collaboration with P21 Gallery, a space supporting learning and storytelling of Arab art and culture through dialogue and tolerance.


Resilience Exile Mutation (REM) is an exploration of Dema One's unique aesthetic. Like many of us, Dema has always felt in between, at the crossroads of various distinct identities and simply refused to choose a side. His works are vibrant expressions in calligraphy, graffiti, poetry, and language. With each piece he not only embraces his intersectionality, he sees and paints it, in all its complexity, as his truest self.

REM presents a visual tale of Belgian-Moroccan artist Dema One’s life and work whilst exploring intersectionality, identity, and migration. Mapping his family’s journey from Morocco to Belgium and their life in Brussels; the exhibition tells one of the millions of stories of geographic displacement and internal exile that can be found in a city like London.
