Arts-Mart gives me the exposure I need. It made me reach more people and allowed me to work side'¨ by side with other artists and this helped me gain a lot of experience.
My heart wasn't in advertising and I wanted to be a full time artist, it was my dream.
I really wanted to be part of 'The Artists of Tomorrow' because it is an exhibition that showcases a variety of different styles and I wanted to be part of this. Personally, Arts-Mart is very important to me, this is the first time I am exhibiting my art since the revolution.
Nothing in specific, it depends on my mood, where I am and the environment around me. I try to look at as much visual imagery as possible to improve my imagination.
I try to achieve this through delving into my personal experiences. The experiences I have had in which culture/heritage and current events have intertwined.
'¨We have a lot of exciting surprises lined up for 2015 to look out for which will revealed closer to the date.
'¨The idea was born from the demand to create a space for young artists.
To provide a platform for art lovers and artists to meet whilst maintaining easy access to the Egyptian art of today.
The exhibition showcases promising talents with fresh voices who are contributing to the rejuvenation of the art scene.
On their style, range, consistency of quality, creativity, and investment value.'¨
'¨It's on the rise. The art following is growing as people gradually are taking more of an interest in art and with it fresh talents are now more present in the art scene. It's becoming trendy.
It presents accessible art for art lovers and at the same time great exposure for artists, it widens the art fan base, provides art awareness, presents young fresh talents along side art masters.
'¨Yes, we hope so.
It's really important to showcase works by up and coming artists. I like Arts-Mart a lot and I think it has a huge amount of potential. I've been with Arts-Mart for three years now and they are great.
I like to keep it simple. I find inspiration in highly populated streets, as I love crowds and crowded places. I believe that a person who grabs a chair and a cup of tea and watches the crowd and people go by can pay a lot of attention to detail.
Because you will find the Egyptian woman everywhere, she is an'¨ important member in our community. She is the figure that keeps everything in motion. As we say in Egypt, she is ''Amoud Elbiet'.
It is difficult to evaluate the artistic scene in Egypt. I see Egypt as a source of art, she is very attached to her past however she still has a bright future ahead of her and is a bit under-valued by our society.
Each artist has his own view on what the key element is in creating a good composition. For some, inspiration is obtained by walking down the streets. For others, the idea is like a baby in a'¨ womb waiting to get out. For me, the key element for a good composition is my memory.
Not getting much appreciation as one could get. Few people understand art as the artists themselves.
Yes I think so. You can't create any kind of figure without being questioned. I once tried drawing a woman fully dressed and on top of her clothes she was wearing underwear and I was accused of being 'naughty', so to speak.
