EP 149 : GRAFFITI EGYPT
"Once I picked up a brush, I knew immediately: This is what I want to do”
Believing in oneself and fully committing to one’s own artistic impulses without regard to outside opinions is the unattainable goal of countless artists. Others however settle quite naturally into this paradigm of thinking. Such is the case for nomadic artist Graffiti Egypt. As she journeys through life relocating her homebase from city to city every few years she moves with a mature confidence that betrays her young age. The portraits she paints on city walls and canvases document her state of mind at any given time while also paying respect to her past and cultural heritage. Her stark black stencil like portraits contrast with the soft color palette and unique pattern work in the background giving each piece a dynamic boldness that is the trademark of Egypt’s work.
