March 17, 2017

Dr. Said Bouftass is an artist and professor from Morocco.

Said Bouftass, PhD, Professor of Fine Arts at the Institut Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Tetouan in Morocco, is co-founder, with Khaldoune Bencheikh, of Phenomorphology of the Human Body Atelier (PHB Atelier), an educational service that specializes in the teaching of theory and practice of the phenomenological drawing of the human body.

Dr. Bouftass will present “Phenomorphology of the Human Body,” on Tuesday March 21 from 2:30 to 4:30 pm in the Center for the Arts (1P-120), Recital Hall.

According to, Dr. Bouftass is, “The greatest specialist in artistic anatomy in Morocco. Born in Casablanca (Morocco) on December 21, 1963, from a family originally from Izbi, near Tafraout, is a visual artist, a researcher at INBA in Tétouan, a graduate of ENSBA Of Paris, and doctor of aesthetics and art history at the Paris-VIII Saint-Denis University.”

“Professor Bouftass uses blackboard drawing as a way to demonstrate the anatomy of the human body, so his work combines anatomy and artistic pedagogy. It is really amazing what he does,” commented Vivian Incera, PhD, Professor of Physics and Dean of Science and Technology. “This is an outstanding example of the mutual benefits of the sciences and the arts, a message I believe in firmly,” Incera noted.

The event is sponsored by the Division of Science and Technology and the Division of Humanities and Social Sciences.
