I’m a British/Egyptian artist residing in the UK, I like to explore Surrealist, abstract and conceptual painting approaches, I also have a passion for painting portraits. I don’t restrict myself to any particular medium or method of painting. Throughout my work I try to bring forth stories, moments in time, to capture a memory or feeling. I’m also noted for my portraiture work and have received several commissions.
My work can be found in private and public collections throughout Egypt,
USA, Canada, Australia, UAE Saudi Arabia and the UK.
