Artist Statement 
  I never considered myself a strong communicator with words. Instead, I relied on the power of visual impressions to convey my ideas. However, in my final two years as a student at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Cairo, I found myself feeling limited in my ability to mix different media in my art, specifically with drawing and printmaking. I was constantly searching for ways to connect materials and incorporate technology into my work. To overcome this roadblock, I began experimenting with using a computer to develop my technique and gradually incorporated it into my art. Inspired by Robert Rauschenberg, I experimented with various materials and surfaces, always searching for new and interesting ways to express myself in the 21st century.

When I discovered the ability to use technology in my art, it was a game-changer. No longer did I need a pen to express myself; I could touch the details with my fingers and create art in a whole new way. Drawing and painting with a computer gave me a sense of joy and awakened my inner child. It allowed me to quickly reconstruct new ideas and break down and rearrange parts of my art with ease.

During my earlier years of experimentation with drawing and painting, I focused mainly on realistic depictions of images. I excelled in these classes and ranked number one among my peers. However, a new period of evolution began in my practice. I started working on art projects after attending art residencies with other artists, where we collaborated on writing art projects. This led me to experiment with different materials and techniques, and I found that writing before starting any artwork helped me generate ideas from my memory and feelings. 

At the young age of 25, I was fortunate enough to represent Egypt at the Venice Biennale 2015, where my colleagues and I created a project called "Can You See?!" with a hidden message to discover peace. This experience inspired me to explore new ideas for my art, and I began working on technology artwork that helped me express my thoughts and emotions more quickly. My artwork is experimental and expressive, and I divide it into projects, each with its own unique concept, character, technique, and materials. I prioritize the interaction between the project, viewer, and myself, creating installations that give my work a living spirit. 

I also experiment with video art, painting, and installations, exploring projects that express different aspects of my artwork through movement, sound, visual solutions, and language. I believe that through my artwork, I can communicate my ideas and emotions in a way that transcends language and speaks to the viewer on a deeper level.
