Beya Khalifa
b. 1994, Egypt

"My collages have a wry sense of humour and awe for the world around them."

The universe is an absurd place where anything and everything can happen. Beya’s surreal digital collages seamlessly layer snippets of different worlds to create (space) portals into all of them. Kitsch and Orientalism are cheekily repurposed to reflect our weird, wonderful, and whimsical world. Born and raised in Cairo, Egypt, Beya navigates the very loud metropolis in a state of perpetual fantasy. When not daydreaming, she can be found with her nose in a book. She likes animals, art, and alliteration.

Artist Statement


My collages don’t take themselves too seriously. They look at the world with humour and a sense of wonder.
