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 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]
