Statement

Hany Ahmed (born 1978 in Cairo, Egypt) is a contemporary emerging artist. He breaks away from centuries of painting traditions in both medium and content. Influenced by graffiti and industrial materials, he uses permanent industrial solid paint markers and oil paintsticks to paint on vinyl. His paintings tell colorful stories about preservation and destruction. He constructs existential visual narratives induced by conflict and intensity.
