El Desouki Fahmi’s oil paintings and colored wax retained this energy and vitality depicting the form derived from nature and the same raw material to build a work of art that the eye doesn’t miss in capturing its saturation with the spirit of ancient Egyptian art.

About the Artist

El Dessouki Fahmi is a painter, writer, and translator who was born in 1938.

El Desouki graduated from the department of Painting, Faculty of Fine Arts in Cairo in 1963, and acquired a Post-graduate Diploma (Egyptology) from Cairo University in 1973. He worked as an archaeological painter at the Egyptian Antiquities organization until he devoted himself to writing and painting in 1993.
His authored and translated works have been published in Egyptian newspapers and magazines since the late fifties, accompanied by his drawings.
His translations varied between novels, short stories, poetry, and critical and philosophical articles, including many books by Franz Kafka (Amerika – Letters to Milena – The Metamorphosis – The Giant Mole).

 

El Desouki’s press drawings were based on his skill in drawing sketches, starting with lines and spaces of black and white in flowing freedom and technical ability to create an intense visual scene paralleling the literary text.
His oil paintings and colored wax drawings retained this energy and vitality, depicting the form derived from nature and the same raw material to build a work of art that the eye does not miss in capturing its saturation with the spirit of ancient Egyptian art.

This exhibition showcases a selection of El Desouki Fahmi’s press illustrations and other unique artworks throughout his art journey.
