As I now live and work as a British artist there are many people who don’t know that I came to England in 2002 in the age of 32 , before that I’ve studied and worked in Egypt, that’s where I got the characteristics which define my work from any work good or bad you see on daily bases in Europe, specially England.
I found out that the following lines always pops up in conversations regarding my work, and it goes like this:
x- I really like your work
me- thank you very much.
x- where are you from?
x- and where is that?
x- ah, but you studied here didn’t you?
me- no, I studied in Egypt
me – really
today i felt that it’s about time that people get to see some of my Egyptian influences, Egyptian artist some of whom i really admire , unfortunately i can not find all of them on line but try these names by following the links
