In his works, he combines abstract architectural formal languages with urban structures that have developed from the various districts in Europe or Africa.
In his paintings, in addition to the painterly expressive possibilities of structures that can be compared, which are shown in the respective architecture, the visualization of social processes with the means of painting is at stake. Architecture is anonymous, marginalized, isolated, but can also have the opposite effect when different ethnic groups meet.
In 2018, Driss Ouadahi showed his exhibition "Systems of demarcation" at the Von der Heydt Museum in Wuppertal. Last year he also participated in the exhibition L'un et làutre at the Palais de Tokyo , Paris with Mona Hatoum and Tamara K.E., among others.
