New tapestry work almost complete

I’m very excited about this:

nazir tanbouli art

My Tapestry work in progress in the craft-space in Khayameya St in Cairo.


The tapestries behind are more typical of the craft, and they are beautiful. However I want to see how my art can be developed using this ancient craft form, which was actually developed for making ceremonial tents. The marriage of contemporary art and traditional craft, keeping the old vital and developing the new.

Thanks Ihab Atwan and Art Brandpro for great production management of this new work.
