Ahmed El-Dafrawy


born 1982, raised and living in Cairo, Egypt. Influenced by Le Fauves, the wild beasts, his loose style in painting and love towards expressing his subjects spontaneously with a bright palette is what got his name among the most prominent rising Egyptian artists today. Having a swift and spontaneous approach in painting adds a remarkable power to his impression. He said “I like to lose myself in front of the canvas hoping to regain composure; this practice is what helps me reach a new result each time.” 2015, he participated in a group exhibition representing the faculty of Art & Education. One of his unique paintings was chosen for the exhibition’s promotional material (exhibition invitation, on the ground posters and online). 2014, he received the certificate of drawing course completion from the faculty of Art & Education at Zamalek Cairo. In 1995, he was hosted on Egypt’s national television representing his school “Misr Language School” with the prominent artist Salah Taher to portray the richness of Egypt’s youth artistic capabilities nationwide. Back at 1993, he received the princess Nouf award at a drawing competition in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia KSA and was granted a letter of recognition by the Egyptian embassy.
