To dream is to be free. Our dreams don’t dwell on our past, aren’t constrained
by our present, and don’t limit our future. In dreams, time flows in all directions and the whole universe is our canvas. To dream is to be human. So much
so, that we do not limit our dreams to when we are asleep, we escape to our daydreams in our waking hours. We create stories, unleash our imaginative powers to create worlds in our minds where we are free to be, to love, to hope, and to soar.
In a busy world where we don’t get much time to stop and think or stop and feel, sometimes all we need is that moment of stillness to reconnect with our innermost selves and our deepest and realest thoughts, away and apart from the perceived “normalness” we must always abide by.
Why don’t we truly let ourselves experience the very personal and emotional streams of consciousness that feel so special and real to us? Let’s go ahead and
daydream, today and everyday, and let our thoughts escape elsewhere and let our minds drift, so that we may find an alternate and heightened state of mind,
a place inside ourselves where we are truly free.

About the Artist

Contemporary Egyptian artist Dina Targam was born in Egypt, in 1990 and currently works and lives in Cairo. She graduated from the American University of Cairo with a bachelor’s degree in Architectural Engineering as well as Visual Art. She’s always been passionate about art and architecture; from a young age, she wasn’t the one who spilled out her heart, but it was only the canvas that allowed her to truly vent her emotions freely without having to describe or justify them.
Targam’s paintings typically do not follow a set plan or logical process. She actively relies on her emotions and subconscious mind to direct her. She attempts to silence the mind and let her soul guide the shades of color and choice of brush strokes.
Although at times the process seems random and arbitrary, as soon as she starts it just flows smoothly as if it was planned all the way. Her abstract style is intuitive, personal, and exposed, leaving you reminiscing about each piece.
Targam held many solo exhibitions in Cairo and participated in several exhibitions in Egypt, Germany, Spain, and Boulevard.
