Hany Rashed has been out in the streets for the best part of the last three years. After returning to his studio, his works still carry the energy of the street. They mirror his reactions to the unfolding socio-political events and changes in the country.
Mentored by the prominent painter Mohamed Abla, Rashed's artwork mostly tackles pop culture and is often tinted with a sense of humour. Rashed has painted Egyptians and Europeans, models and policemen; his art continues to break barriers between these different worlds. He has exhibited his work in major venues internationally, including Dubai, London and Berlin.
For Back to (The) Square 1 Rashed will create miniature versions of the murals of Cairo.
