“The cultural and historical heritage of papyrus was an impetus for me to draw closer to our identity and how to present it in a modern context. Ancient Egyptians considered nature’s gifts, such as papyrus, as holy, and emphasized its simplicity and dainty texture; it’s very simplicity is an inspiration for the art our ancestors created.”
Born in Sohag in 1988, Ahmed graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Luxor in 2010.
He has been exhibiting his work both on the local and international arenas in private and group settings including Salon “Al Ganoub” in Luxor, the Annual Youth Salon, the Agenda International Forum, the Alexandria Library Exhibition, the Hurghada Festival of Arts 2013, and Luxor International Forum of Painting, in addition to many others.
Adham continues to highlight the links between past and present, the acquired and the habitual, and reformulates these through his artworks encased in a contemporary vision.
