I'm a British/Egyptian artist, with a BA in Fine Arts from the faculty of Fine Arts in Cairo. I like to project ideas and subjects that go unnoticed by most. I've always been fascinated by human faces and the stories they tell. I'm deeply inspired by the different cultures in the world and how they affect each other. I also like to explore surrealist, abstract and conceptual painting approaches, working intricately with patterns and calligraphy, using my own stylistic scripts. I’m also noted for my portraiture work and received several commissions.
