Upon my first visit to Cairo in early 2017, I was immediately struck by the sensory impact of the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the city and its surroundings. It was then that the idea formed to return to Cairo independently and transfer my experiences onto canvas. The motifs in this series showcase the breadth of distinct moments of beauty and awe that I encountered in the architecture, people, landscapes and emotions among the streets of Cairo, Alexandria and in the Western Desert. This is a documentation of my personal connections with Egypt, presented through the prism of my eye and paintbrush. Some days my eye would focus on the light reflected off of Cairo’s architectural facades, on others a colorful scarf wrapped around the shoulders of a vegetable seller would catch my attention. This series is composed of distinct moments, which together display Egypt as seen and lived through my eye.
