The retaining and reviving Egyptian identity is in my ‘Neo-Pharaonic’ iconographic style. By utilizing Egyptian heritage, I try to place current political issues within the linear trajectory of Egyptian history. The ruler and the ruled, the oppressor and the oppressed; these persistent binaries are nowhere more overt and questioned myself on my artworks. I’m still exploring the dichotomies of popular culture through the mediums of video and painting for over 30 years. My life in Egypt during a period of continuous political and cultural change, the transformation of what it means to be from ‘the East’ is a theme that runs through much of my art. My artworks depict striking juxtapositions of traditional and contemporary iconography.
