I have recently uploaded a video to youtube that I made with all the pictures that I took of street art in Casablanca. You can find the link to the street art here.

There is a path that runs along the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, leading to the new Hassan 2 mosque. Beside the path is a wall that has been painted with street art. When I walked here in October 2019, these are the murals that I saw. I have only been able to identify some of the artists.

Casablanca, at Socrate et Ali Abderrazak
As you walk toward the intersection of Blvd Socrate and Blvd Ali Abderrazak the large murals there come into view.
below: The mural in front is “Facing Forward” and it was painted by Moroccan artist Majid El Bahar; it was part of Sbagha Bagha, an annual street art festival in Casablanca.
The two murals behind the women were painted for Casamouja 2019. This is an annual “urban art wave” and murals in 5 locations were/are part of this year’s event (between 20 Sept and 25 Nov). The first location was at this intersection where there were 4 large murals. Casamouja is a public programme started in 2016 for the promotion of street art in various districts of Casablanca.
In the middle is a mural of a man falling past a white, pink, and red background that was painted by OLDR

At the back is a mural of cartoon characters by Moka
Just around the corner are two other murals that were also painted for Casamouja 2019.
