HOSSAM DIRAR AMONG TOP 10 EGYPTIAN CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS

January 14, 2015

Janet Rady Fine Art artist Hossam Dirar was listed among Top 10 should know Egyptian Contemporary Artists, according to The Culture Trip.

'Hossam Dirar is a man of many talents. Using painting, photography, video, installation, and graphic design, he is not a man to be pigeon holed. His portraits from his most recent exhibition, ‘Awaiting’ (April 2014) at the Albareh Art Gallery, engage in the Egyptian tradition of portraiture in a way that challenges all previous assumptions. The women depicted do not sit passively, but stare back at the viewer, seducing and challenging; they are clearly women with stories. In contrast, he uses video in his piece, ‘from 11:00 till 11:03’, as a means of documentation, in order to demonstrate the wide range of activities that occur across Cairo in a given moment, one year after the Egyptian Revolution.'
