BiographyEdit

Chaïbia was born in Chtouka, a small village near El Jadida, Morocco.[1] She was married at the age of 13, before having a son, and then becoming a widow at 15.[2] When her husband died, she worked as a maid to earn money to support herself and her son.[3] Then one day she said she had a dream which inspired her to teach herself to paint and become a painter, which she did.[4]

She was influenced by works of artists from the CoBrA painting movement. Her work is also considered by some people, such as journalist Ahmed El Fassi, to be an example of naïve art.[5]

There was a 2015 Moroccan biographical movie created about Chaïbia Talal, called Chaïbia, directed by Youssef Britel, written by David Villemin and Youssef Britel, and starring Saadia Azgoun as Chaïbia Talal.[6]
