About the artist:

Born in El Badir (Egypt) in 1956, Shafik studied arts and art of the scene at the Fine Arts Academy in Milan, Egypt and in other countries.

Shafik was rewarded with the first prize in many art competitions including the Venice Biennale where he was given the Golden Lion Award in 1995.

Shafik’s work is strongly influenced by his Egyptian origins. The power of the Egyptian art and culture with its wonderful religious mythology, amazing figurative writing and astonishing architecture, together with the allure of the other great ancient culture which developed in the Mediterranean Sea are constantly evocated in his works.

Shafiks work is absolutely contemporary both for its techniques and concept. He uses natural supports and materials as wood, sand and juta to compose art close to abstraction.
