Celebrating the rich traditions of Egyptian culture in his contemporary compositions, artist Abdel Fattah El Badry has been a central influence in the evolution of Egyptian art since the 1970s. His enduring passion for country life, the Nile, folk dancing, crowd formations, and traditional Egyptian games informs the bold forms and vibrant colours that dominate his work, and his blend of minimalism in his representational approach conveys a striking parallel to the conventions of Islamic Art.
Born in 1949, El Badry has enjoyed a long and very distinguished career. His award-winning work has been collected worldwide and exhibited extensively locally and internationally. El Badry's artwork is featured in the Egyptian Museum of Modern Art due to his considerable influence on the art movement since the seventies.
