Akram Fadl is a Cairo-based visual artist, actively contributing to Egypt's vibrant art scene since 2001. He was born in Egypt in 1981 and earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree specializing in the Painting department from the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Alexandria in 2004.
In 2010, he became a Certified Art & Design instructor from Cambridge, UK, furthering his artistic development. Fadl's artistic style is fluid and versatile, ranging from pure abstract works to realism, elegantly blending the two worlds to create captivating compositions. To explore new artistic solutions and revelations, he experiments with a range of mediums, blending traditional and contemporary painting techniques.
Symbolism plays a pivotal role in Fadl's artwork, inspired by his Egyptian heritage. He has a keen eye for understanding the concept of space, as it relates to both the image and thoughts, marks, and etchings, cementing his artworks with a captivating and consistent quality that contributes to his process of picture-making. Fadl's artwork seeks to align itself with his inner self to comprehend the mind's navigation when analyzing thoughts during the act of creation.
His paintings and drawings feature waves of colors, symbols, letters, and numbers, combined with abstract forms, expressing an inner dialogue and transforming thoughts and concepts into physical forms. Rather than focusing solely on superficial aesthetics, Fadl aims to capture the true essence and raw emotion of his surroundings, as well as his innermost thoughts and philosophies. His technique includes Sgraffito, line-work, colors, and textures, transforming the nature of ideas into powerful paintings.
In recent years, Fadl has exhibited in several notable solo and group exhibitions. These include "Arête 2021," "Overture," and "The Figure in Motion" at Dacia Gallery in New York, USA, and group exhibitions such as the annual exhibition at Dacia Gallery in New York, USA, in 2019.
