Life TRAILBLAZERS: Chaïbia Talal – the self-taught Moroccan ‘outsider artist’ 

DUBAI: Moroccan artist Chaïbia Talal, who died in 2004, could not read or write. Regardless, she expressed herself clearly through her lively, striking paintings.  

According to one obituary, Talal, who was born in the rural Moroccan village of Chtouka in 1929, started painting after being visited in a dream by a group of men dressed in white who handed her brushes and a canvas.
