Artist’s Story

Mohammad Awwad is an artist and graphic designer / A graduate of the Academy Of Arts in Egypt / He finds inspiration in random motives, personal interests, colours, textures and his daily life / Gathering and using anything from Magazine collages to site seeing tickets / His artwork shows a vintage and surreal style with colors contrasting over layers of textures and cultures that he is been exposed to / He also finds inspiration in many haphazard items; including bus tickets, vintage soda bottles, magazines and old books / Throughout each image, his trademark harlequin kaleidoscope pattern appears giving the images their whimsical appearance and contradicting the gravity of each subject / Mohammad's  continuous pursuit of new experiences, mediums and ideas makes his work more authentic and diverse /

Artist Statement

In my artworks I try to make sense, through dreamlike imagery of such contentious issues such as power and politics, the environment and culture. With works inspired by the turmoil in Egypt, the impossible situation in Gaza, the gap in women’s education in certain cultures and the greenhouse effect, each image is a dream scenario with multiple elements. Throughout each image, my trademark harlequin kaleidoscope pattern appears giving the images their whimsical appearance – contradicting the gravity of each subject.
