Far beyond the walls of the studio, the talent of those who forge the history of Quantic Dream day after day shines through. We salute today the talent of Abdelaziz “Aziz” Mohsni, a long-time collaborator who helped write some of the studio’s most beautiful pages, and whom has sadly left us last week.
A renowned visual artist, Aziz was one of the leading figures of sculpture in Tunisia, the country from which he originated. He had devoted himself with passion to his favorite art, while also being interested in painting, engraving and ceramics. He had also received in 2016 the great prize of the city of Tunis for the Plastic Arts and exhibited in his studio in Aubervilliers, near Paris, where he had settled in 1997. Humble, he was very discreet about his work.
For Quantic Dream, Aziz was omnipresent: he was the unfailing carpenter, electrician, welder and the craftsman of many other daily miracles, which he realized in the motion capture set to build our sets and props. He recently exercised his talents by building the astonishing new sound studio, by assembling the mixing booths, the photogrammetry rig… Nothing was impossible for him, he could do everything! He was always cheerful and smiling. He sparkled with intelligence and kindness.
Aziz leaves a great void in the studio and in the hearts of those who had the chance to know him.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
