Raised by Egyptian parents, I grew up in the Middle East on the island of Bahrain. I’ve always had a strong desire to pursue art, and in 2009 I attained a BA in Fine Art from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada, majoring in Painting and Drawing.
My work surrounds a post-modern approach by placing my subjects within an intensely colored and intricately ornamented surface. Merging pop culture with a rather traditional painting technique, I found my inspiration from innovative work of contemporary, urban artists as well as the traditional style of the old Masters. Graphic and graffiti illustrative work are a few examples of urban art that has influence in my artistic style.
