About

"Transfiguration" Oil painting 28" x 20" inch by Alaa Abu Elham Alaa Abo El-Hamd transports you to the inside of an ancient Egyptian tomb. The artist skillfully manipulates paint, contrasting the ethereal faces with patterned backgrounds. We are left with hauntingly beautiful faces, neatly packed into two, long, adjacent canvases, telling stories of a very old Egypt. His paintings feel familiar, yet they are rare to encounter and mystifying to experience. A significant, potent painter whose works speak boldly of the past and the present, Alaa brings a sensibility and benevolence to all his portraits of Egyptian men and women: ethereal beings who are both vulnerable flesh and eternal souls, tied to their histories yet ever living for the future. There is simply a timelessness to his paintings. They are sublime works of art, full of grace, heritage, and hope. “I am very proud of this very important material papyrus paper. I live in Luxor and have a strong bond with papyrus paper it’s all over Luxor from the Nile shore I see the plants everywhere and of course a huge part of our heritage.” Alaa Abul Hamd Exhibitions: 2004 "The Faculty Exhibition" faculty of Fine Arts ,South valley University. 2003 The Small works Exhibition , Minister of Culture. 2006 Friendship Exhibition Faculty of Fine Arts , South valley University. 2006 Friendship Exhibition Faculty of specific Art , Helwan University. 2007,2008,2009 "Youth Salon". 2007 "Exhibition" Biennale of Port Said . 2008 "Friendship Exhibition" Frankfurt, Germany. 2008 "Friendship Exhibition" Berlin, Germany.
