Statement

Doaa Farouk El-Desouky,

An artist & a teacher at the Faculty of Applied arts, Helwan University .. Graduated from the department of Advertising in 1998 with honours & was appointed as an instructor at the same department in 1998 .. Participating in the art field since graduation till now in the fields of painting & graphic design.. Obtained Masters in Advertising in 2002 . Prepared thesis & obtained PH.D in Advertising & was promoted as a lecturer at the department of Advertising in in 2006.

Since my early beginnings , nature & human emotions have been the inspiring motivations for my work .. through observation & meditation both the surroundings & the insides have affected my style of expression in a way that combines between realism & abstraction .. however , abstraction was & still the dominant in my work, as i consider it the key word to my art . 

My artwork  is mainly concerned with figurative abstraction, where the painting is set to meet the viewer's eye somewhere in the middle, where the viewer brings his own experiences to understand and feel what he is seeing.. Through my paintings I attempt to achieve complexity and density, to build suggestive layers & implied meanings, not merely mixing lines & colors only to attract the eye .. my paintings are simply and directly painted along with holding deep emotions & hidden meanings, that it shows both the act of painting & expresses the joy and the excitement of it ..
