Welcome to Dr Alaa Awad
He became famous for his special murals on Mohamed Mahmoud Street in Cairo of 2012.
His paintings , drawings, mosaic and his murals capture the history and traditions of Egypt, which he translated into a colorful neo-pharonic style. Many of this same images can be seen in Awad's artwork today as he is inspired from the famous works of art from Ancient Egypt that may be seen in temples and museums.

He take familiar images that surrounded Egyptians and placed them in a different, contemporary context.
“I am proud about it,” he says. “When I was young, I saw pictures of Tutankhamun, Nefertari and Nefertiti. They were like treasures for me. Ancient Egypt was a big civilisation. I must make people remember this culture, this history – because we can lose it. And we can’t know our future if we forget our past.”
