Mohamed Rabie's artwork is deeply rooted in his hometown's identity. He offers a layered blend of the different eras and cultures that constitute the rich heritage of southern Egypt. By extracting fragmentary concepts from this history, Rabie effectively translates them through contemporary meaning. The result of this transformation is that the viewer of Rabie’s art can immediately connect with the characters depicted.
Born in Minya in 1986, Rabie graduated from the Faculty of Fine Art of Cairo University’s painting department and today is a member of the Fine Artists Association and the General Federation of Arab Archaeologists. In 2011, he won an incentive award from Helwan University, followed by a full-time grant from the Ministry of Culture. His art is part of private collections in Egypt and Dubai as well as a permanent collection at the General Authority for Cultural Palaces. His paintings have been exhibited in over 15 group shows in Egypt, including those held in locales such as the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Cairo Opera House, and the Museum of Modern Art.
