Egyptian artist Omar Badran bases his artistic approach on the traditional, academic rules of art. From that springboard, though, Badran heads off into titillating visual territory as he adds his own vision of life and current events. Through studying art history and the techniques that date back to the prehistoric world, Badran has developed a particular fascination with Egyptian folklore and legends. He thus distinguishes his personality with the grandeur of a world of fantasy.
Born in 1983, Badran studied sculpture at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Alexandria University in 2004 and is currently training as a teaching assistant at the same university.
