After graduating from The Faculty of Applied Arts, Helwan University; Hossam Dirar was interested in the study of calligraphy and its relation to art. He was thus a constant participant in all art, photography and creativity workshops held at that time. @hossamdirar became known in Egypt and the Middle East as a genuine contemporary artist for his daring innovation in art techniques. He has introduced his contemporary art to the Egyptian art scene through his unique mixed media artworks that were accentuated by hand paint and successfully exhibited in private galleries & international exhibitions in many European countries.
Hossam Dirar, Timeless, 2018, oil on canvas, 116 × 90 cm
❤️ Here is a lovely portrait of Ada, Alex Katz's wife. Katz has been quoted as saying "my wife, Ada, is my muse. When she was young she went to the movies and was very influenced – all her gestures come out of movies. She’s like a dancer. She doesn't make a bad gesture. I am really lucky!" #alexkatz#art#buyart#sellart#artist#artoftheday#contemporaryart
We purchased a fabulous plant mounted on driftwood from @fait.nola’s mobile solarium Axil Rose last night and added it to our salon-style art wall in the living room (bottom right). I just noticed everything on this side — except the map of Paris (thanks, @mikeljd!) — is either made by an artist local to a place we’ve lived or by an insanely talented artist friend. ❤️ Starting from top left, a corner detail of”Blade Runner,” screenprint by Austin artist Tim Doyle at @nakatomi_inc; handmade flower by NOLA artist @sturgillart in memory of our beloved kitty Cleo; ugh, I can’t remember the name of the artist who made the middle-ish gray piece, but it’s from a gallery on Magazine Street; photo transfer by Bay St. Louis artist and @smithandlens gallery co-owner @annmaddenphotography; on top of that, a tiny altar and @beastieboys__ homage made by Houston writer and artist @quefrankie; and far, bottom right, new piece by @fait.nola! I love being surrounded by art and by so many talented humans! (Swipe to see close up of each piece and pardon my dust. I busted out the feather duster AFTER seeing it in the photos! 😂)
