“I have been wanting to revisit Morocco ever since my last trip in 2015. It’s such a remarkable country to travel around. One day you are in the High Atlas Mountains with spectacular views of valleys remote ancient villages, the next day you find yourself walking through a fertile Oasis in the shade of Palm trees or strolling through intoxicating and vibrant souks or market places, and then a day later you are in the spectacular Saharan sand dunes at sunrise then lounging on exotic Berber rugs in the nearby Riad or traditional Moroccan house for breakfast.” – Martin King

Artist Martin King has recently featured as a guest artist with Amazigh Art Tours, on a 14 day art tour across Morocco.

Perched on the North West tip of Africa, Morocco is endowed with a rich and complex
cultural history where the indigenous Amazigh (Berber) people maintain a strong connection with the land and their ancient traditions and lifestyle.

The art tour was structured to finding a balance between site seeing and art making, some days involving guided tours, long drives through spectacular landscape and exploring the local villages, while other days more time was devoted to art-making.

We are excited to announce that Martin King’s upcoming solo exhibition opens at Australian Galleries Melbourne on Tuesday 14 November 2023
