Alaa Lotfy (°1973, Cairo) makes drawings, paintings and drawings. By choosing mainly formal solutions, Lotfy makes works that can be seen as self-portraits. Sometimes they appear idiosyncratic and quirky, at other times; they seem typical by-products of American superabundance and marketing.
I never stopped learning, I strongly think that we are learn every single day
Hi Nashwa, Just to let you know that the paintings have indeed arrived and picked by myself few days ago. The two paintings are high quality art of great value. The Shaheen painting is very, very, very original. It has a great metaphysical quality. looking at it from a Christian view point, I see the face of Mary closing her eyes and wondering about the great responsibility she will have to assume as a mother of a great prophet but also reflecting prospectively on the pain she will have to endure seeing her son tortured then crucified. Please transfer this to artist Shaheen. I really feel that I have museum quality peaces. Nadim
