Fascinated by the rich history of Tangier in Morocco, and increasingly drawn to the city’s cosmopolitan beauty, satirist, artist and writer, Bryan Dawe created an extraordinary series of collage artworks which he exhibited in the Kasbah of Tangier in February 2017.

He sought to remind us of the many creative people who found inspiration in the places they frequented .

Glowing with sensuality and energy, the works recall William S Burroughs, Jane and Paul Bowles, the old cafes they inhabited along-side artists, spies, the wealthy, and the smugglers.

All set against the backdrop of a city of surreal contrasts, Bryan honours Tangier’s creative and social past in a talk about his exhibition and the creative and social world of one of the world’s most intriguing cities.

Tangier Illusions is on show at Arnold Street Gallery in Bendigo, opening on Thursday August 10, 6pm.
