Asmaa Samy showcases her most recent collection, “That Smell,” at Picasso Art Gallery. That smell, it’s what distinguishes every woman from her counterpart. At a very young age, we leave the development of our human essence in the hands of our childhood. These early years help us discover who we are, what we are, and the relationships we have with the things that exist in life around us. Things as simple as the taste of honey, the smell of flowers, and the nectar of the lips that lingers after a quick stolen kiss. And in our memory, some things remain and others evaporate, slowly becoming almost impossible to remember how and when things started.

I have loved Velázquez and Rembrandt since I was a child, and quickly became infatuated with Turner and Van Gogh when I was a teenager. Through my love for them, the uniqueness of my brushstrokes came to be.

This is how the great visual artist, Samir Fouad, verbalises his exhibition, and he continues to describe his artwork as a product of great value which leaves a significant impact on its surroundings.

This was initially my objective as a painter, but the joy of crafting the work with fluency and visual rhetoric that communicated to the soul and feelings is what still inspires me and my work. My work aims to create a message and a conversation that sheds light on several impactful subjects, and very often I leave its interpretation to the eyes of the beholder so that the artwork penetrates his being and consciousness.

It is worth noting that the artist, Samir Fouad, participated in many exhibitions outside and inside Egypt throughout his rich history, in addition to multiple solo exhibitions that he held.

This exhibition consists of 25 artworks and will run until January 16th.

Every piece recounts a story from a scene, movie, or novel that carries, in its essence, great significance.

About the Artist

Asmaa Samy was born on May 25, 1983. watercolor virtuoso Asmaa Samy revives the nineteenth-century impressionist style in her body of work by utilizing delicate washes of various hues to evoke a sense of visual freedom.
Samy has developed an incredible body of work that resonates with such harmony by picturing her paintings as striving for their harmony, comparable to a musical score. In 2005, Samy graduated from Helwan University’s Faculty of Fine Arts. Her art has subsequently been included in other group exhibitions and seminars in Cairo. Her approach to feeling free is to combine ladies – the subjects of her paintings – and music!

She understands that in the realm of watercolors, all you have to do is build a dialogue between yourself and the movement of water as if you were playing your melodies and swaying softly to draw you into this beautiful world.
