Sixty years separate the first and last paintings in this collection.

We are not here to make comparisons or examine history, but rather to reinforce the notion that the journey of art is a talent in addition to the combined layers of hard work and various experiences, as well as the insistence on overcoming the many stations of failure.

Back in 1950, when I was only 6 years old, Ms. Soraya, my instructor, wrote in January’s monthly workbook “A Child who tends to work constantly and Excellent in the drawing.” This simple phrase described my whole artistic career as though I were looking forward to the future.

Now, at the age of 78, the act of art is still capable of sparking the spirit of resistance in a tired body and forcing it to continue inhaling the aroma of a vivid fragrance day after day.

About the Artist

Samir Fouad was born in 1944 in Heliopolis, Cairo, and started practicing art at an early age and playing the violin in his early teens.

Fouad graduated from Cairo University with a B.Sc. in Communications Engineering in 1966 and started a career in the field of information technology which spanned 34 years. He continued practicing art and his job allowed him extensive travel, which enabled him to continually follow new trends in art.

He has been actively participating in the Egyptian art movement since the early eighties, exhibiting in national and collective exhibitions and establishing himself as one of the leading Egyptian watercolor artists.

Fouad retired from his job at the beginning of 2001 and has been solely devoted to his art since. Fouad wrote a book “Water-Colors”, In 2001, he represented Egypt in the International Water-Color Biennale. He participated in the 2011 Luxor International Symposium. He was a member of various selection committees for national art exhibitions.

In 2016, he co-exhibited with the famous Italian artist Franco Rizolli in Venice. In 2018, the Ministry of Culture organized a large retrospective of his works at the Ofok Gallery and the Mahmoud Khalil Museum, in Cairo. His works have been exhibited in various countries, such as the USA, UK, Russia, Italy, Dubai, Kenya, Kuwait, England, Kenya and Saudi Arabia, and since 1997 he has had fifteen solo exhibitions in Egypt.
