Friendly Conversation with Abdel TAMMARI on Moroccan Digital Art
Good Sunday friends, Mahmoud here
This week I talked to Abdel Tammari. He’s a passionate 3D Generalist from Casablanca, Morocco. He creates and makes Motion Design on Moroccan Culture related art projects that combines innovation and Morocco’s authenticity.
What would a friend or a family member say to describe Abdel?
Dreamer, hard worker, a person who believes in perseverance and continues to do or try to achieve something despite difficulty or discouragement.
How did you started your creative journey?
Back in 2007 when internet cafes becomes popular in Morocco I discovered by coincidence a video of Photoshop image manipulation and I downloaded the software and started playing with it till I got famous in my small village, people were asking me to put them next to Ferrari cars, or in New York City.
Those people encouraged me, they were calling me “genius” and encourage me to pursue in this path because for them Photoshop looks a complicated software and I master it.
How a day look like as a Creator?
I usually spend my day working on client work if not I have my personal because I enjoy creating new ideas, so most of the time I’m next to the computer working, learning new stuff, watching other creators.
As an introverted person, I don’t socialize too much but this year I decided to start becoming a little bit extroverted, I go out from time to time to hang out with friends or my family.
Tell us about the project you are currently working on?
As I’m looking to develop my skill always, Right now I’m trying to make something in Virtual Reality, something that can be viewed and interact with using a VR Headset.
I believe Virtual Reality is the future of creation.
What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever created for yourself or for a client?
I enjoy making my personal project more than for clients because I get more freedom and flexibility, I think the best project for me is “Taarija Speaker”, I love the idea, textures, animation, and also is related to our Moroccan culture.
We have seen a lot of your creative Art drops, the Taarija Speaker, Casa Balloons, Cyberpunk Hover Casablancais Taxi, Samurai Gerrab, ANAROZE and others. We find this so amazing.
Can you mention your top 3 creations you love?
My top 3 creations are: Taarija Speaker, Spotify Speaker, and ANAROZE.
TAARIJA is a creative portable speaker fully inspired from the Moroccan traditional musical instrument "TAARIJA".
I'm pretty happy with the result I got , it's was fun making transforming "TAARIJA" to something new.
Spotify Speaker is a personal project relay on 3D product visualization.
Modeling and animation by Abdel TAMMARI
Studio: Yeysome Studio
Berbers, or Amazighs are an ethnic group of several nations indigenous mostly to North Africa and in some northern parts of Western Africa. I'm big fan of Berber culture . ANAROZE is a personal work that I made in my spare time, modeling with Zbrush and Cinema 4D.
Where do you spend your time for inspiration?
I always get most of my inspiration from everything around me in real living life, I use Pinterest to search and collect references images, I also use Instagram and spent more time watching other creators and get inspired by them.
Have you ever wondered to tokenize your work and sell it as NFTs?
Yes, I’m looking to start making some original NFTs, I believe NFTs have a future, I just took my time to figurate it and learn more about tokenization.
The NFTs markets are rising fast and there are fewer and fewer original NFTs and more limitations.
We’re all about appreciating and celebrating our community members and their accomplishments. Is there anyone you’d like to appreciate?
First, I would like to thank Mahmoud for giving me the chance to be on Morocco Reviews community. He’s a kind person and I had the pleasure to talk to him and know him.
Second I would like to appreciate and thank my bother Youness TAMMARI. He’s one of the greatest Artists and Motion Designers I know and he always encourages me to do more and give me feedbacks to develop my work.
Where our community members can follow your work?
Until next week,
Mahmoud & Chaimae
