Najah Zarbout is originally from Kerkennah (Tunisia). After studying at the Institut Supérieur des Arts et Métiers in Sfax, she was accepted at the University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne where she obtained a doctorate in Arts and Sciences of Art.
She currently holds a position as a lecturer at the Institut Supérieur des Beaux-Arts in Sousse. Zarbout is interested in subjects related to current affairs as well as the contemporary individual and society. Her achievements in plastic arts deal with the relationship to the other in its various aspects. She thus proposes a metaphor of the human being in his submission or his disobedience and invites the spectator to an imaginary journey through the medium of paper. Behind her works, which seem to be playful, are hidden deep and daring themes.
