As a child, Omar used to sit in cafes observing people’s faces and behavior, he saw their joys and sorrows and the feelings that were in their chests, and he didn’t know a better way to express that than with his brush, with which he recorded what his memory stored.

The features of his figures are not visible, but their body language reveals the inner being and the state of their psyche.

Omar EL-Fayoumi continues to reside in an ancient house in an old neighborhood, as the inexhaustible fountain and ideal environment nourish his imagination and serve as his source of life. He is in close proximity to Khedive Cairo, where art, culture, and literature congregate in downtown cafés.
