Hani Rashed (Egyptian, 1975)
A life-long resident of Cairo, Hani Rashed trained at fellow Egyptian artist Mohamed Abla’s atelier for a decade before venturing off on his own creative path in 2003. Over the past dozen years Hany Rashed has produced an extremely original body of work. Using the technique of monotype on black-and-white and colour, he produces sketches compounded of allusions to classic oriental imaginary as well as a more personal inspiration, conjuring up interior spaces and tormented visions of people and society, His work examines the relationship between East & West in his faceless repetitive figures. He had many international group exhibitions in London, Greece, Dubai, Senegal, Spain, and Sweden.
