"Marc Eliany touches the heroic, the power of the symbol… His painting reduces rhythms to their essential. From his native Morocco, he does not paint the concrete object but powerful symbols, a transformation of his childhood milieu… In his allegory on canvases, Marc Eliany, does not express nostalgia but a desire to repossess the doors, the walls and landscapes of his native Morocco… His work expresses his deep and colorful spirituality, and his fierce sensuality…” a review from Gates of Welcome by Dr. Serge Ouaknine, Université du Québèc 1994
"In his exhibition 'Eroba Eroba', Marc Eliany uses colors and forms as symbols to tell a story about Europe from a non-European point of view… He expresses: hope for a better future… deception... persecutions... and he turns back to hope... Using a language of Symbolic Expressionists, this artist tells a painted tale in which he bridges between two worlds" Exerts from a review of Eroba Eroba by Dr Gabriele Kohlbauer, Vienna Jewish Museum, 1997
