Art is the manipulation of accumulated aesthetics. One finds himself obliged to experience paints and brushes, pencils and paper, inks and etching plates, clay and modelling, the wacom tablet and the computer screen, all but for the sake of the very excitement of the moment.
I am and since 1970 am still a painter. I have graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts of Alexandria, Egypt in 1977. Masters Degree in Visual and Performing Arts from Charles Sturt University, Australia 2010.
My artwork revolves on daily acquainted themes: The portrait, the still life, the car and the composition, all in an abstract expressionistic style.
Winner of the Grand-Prix of Rome in Painting in 1992, Ministry of Culture of Egypt.
