Egyptian painter Mostafa Rahma uses as his muse the motif of the female form. Portraying these women with great affection, Rahma hopes to underscore their boundless love of life, their strength, and their classiness as he lovingly exposes their daily ways of life.
Born in 1952, Rahma lives and works in Cairo. He has participated in countless group and solo exhibitions in Egypt and abroad and has also published several award-winning books for children. Rahma has been celebrated by receiving several other awards, including the Prince Faisal Bin Talal Award (1992), the Cultural Sector Award at Sharjah (1994), the Abu Dhabi Cultural Center Award (1996). His work has been acquired in private collections around the world.
