Our Story

We've loved every minute of our journey

Blue Bird Studio

This is the studio, "our art studio" my husband "Alaa Lotfy" and I used to create our graphic designs and artworks using this name "Blue bird studio" at 2003, just another year our son "Ahmed, almost 4 year-old" became our new partner, he made his 1st exhibition at Cairo atelier in Downtown, Cairo. 

Our First Member

Ahmed Alaa, he is the new studio member, from that day he is paint and draw with us, each one of us have his own atelier inside the mail studio.

Here is the idea, as well as, Cairo atelier in downtown consists of many atelier and a spaces of gallery for changing exhibitions to another artists, why we don’t do that “on a small scale”? The gallery had opened on October 2006, and it was as the 1st art gallery at New Cairo City.

Who is Nashwa?

  • I was born in 1972, currently, live and work as a graphic designer at Cairo, Egypt, I graduated from Faculty of Art Education, Helwan University in 1996. Since that date I never stopped learning, as I strongly think that we are learn every single day. Although my job is a graphic designer, I also make photos, paintings and mixed media artworks. With a subtle minimalistic approach, I try to develop forms that do not follow logical criteria, which incite the viewer to make new personal associations.

  • I believe that positive attitude always could make high and speed communication, which lead to a productive teamwork.

  • Even if I faced an issue, I know how to deal with it as I have thinking skills and flexibility that make me match it with previous problems.

Alaa Lotfy

New digital paintings, Portraits.

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.


Mohsen Attya

The color of passion

Mohsen Attya (°1947, Cairo, Egypt) is an artist who mainly works with painting. With a conceptual approach, Attya creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.


Gallery owner

Hi, my name is Nashwa and this is my small creative family; my husband, Alaa and my son, Ahmed.
I'm also an artist and a graphic designer, our art store is not only to show and sale our artwork, but also to sale a selected artworks by a few unique artists.
As a house wife I realize how important the painting's content is matter especially when we have children at home, also colors, sizes and prices.
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
