Tahar Ben Jelloun

I imagine that you continue to write in parallel with this relatively new activity of painter. Is there any correspondence between the two?

"I try to keep writing as a witness of my time and my painting, even if I lie a little, contains the joy of living, because it is necessary to hope and fight. In a sense, painting and writing complement each other. That's why I could say that I write the pain of the world and I paint its light."
