Djelfa: “El Kantass 2018” prize awarded to painter Bouziane Bousaid


The prize “El Kantass 2018” of Plastic Art, was awarded to the painter Bouziane Bousaid, also a teacher at the Institute of Fine Arts in Tizi-Ouzou.

The artist won this prize for his painting entitled “the questioning of innocence”, according to the announcement made by the jury of the contest, on the evening of Wednesday, at the closing ceremony of this 9th edition, sheltered by the house of culture “Ibn Rochd”.

This El Kantass prize “is an honor for me and for all the artists,” assured Bouziane Bousaid in his speech on the occasion, highlighting the “interest and importance” of this artistic event that brought together different styles and genres. Referring to his career, the artist reported having already won the 2nd prize at an international exhibition on the visual arts, recently organized in Paris (France).

In his speech at the ceremony, the chairman of the competition jury, Oubah Smail, assured that “the only criterion taken into account in the awarding of this prize is the value of the work”.

Marked by the presence of a multitude of styles, expressions and artistic genres, this 2018 edition recorded the participation of 73 artists, from 45 wilayas, said Mr. Oubah, deploring, however, the absence in this show of the art of sculpture.
