Saïd Djaballah graduated in Arabic calligraphy from the Beaux Arts of Egypt. After collaborating on the production of large frescoes for mosques in Algeria, he is gradually moving towards ceramics, then settles in his workshops in 1997. Tonton Saïd – that is what craftsmen and apprentices call him, is always ready to advise and help young people to get started. He trains himself several young people each year.
Said Djaballah actively participates in the decoration of urban spaces of different municipalities; his trompe-l’oeil frescoes give the illusion of the image through writing and thus invite to travel.
