The artist works in a range of media, including drawing, painting, video, sculpture, and installation; the results, figurative but fragmented, are marked by a chaotic dynamism. Chamekh is drawn to complexity, as evidenced by his transcultural, sociopolitical research and his artistic commitment to macrocosmic and primordial questions regarding beginnings, endings, and the cycle of life and death.
