Project Description

The paintings of Alaa Awad

Alaa Awad has been painting since childhood. “My dad encouraged me to go in that direction,” he recalls. He draws his inspiration from the life of his country, from his traditions, from the heritage of pharaonic civilization. He blends subtly with the social conditions of his country.

He is the only one who derives this style from his cultural heritage. “It is important to me to convey and express a modern message in ancient Egypt, all of which are part of my values ​​of respect.”

Proud of his culture, he immersed himself in this martial art by watching traditional festivals in southern Egypt. Especially the Sufi festival, which takes place in several cities before Ramadan. To explain this lost legacy, Alaa Awad uses extravagant colors, witnessing the effervescence of these celebration moments.
The artist can paint three to four screens at the same time. “I start, stop, go to another canvas, come back, it all depends on the feeling, it can take up to six months, charcoal, watercolor, natural pigments are part of his colorful palette, but he also works pure ink.
