Yehia O. Aboelfotoh was born in 1987, Cairo, Egypt. Prior to graduation from dentistry, his artistic inclination was limited to pencil work. After graduating, he started delving into oil paint, owing to his father’s interest in oil painting. Aboelfotoh has picked up oil painting and never left it since.
His work is primarily landscape based surrealism with constant experimenting with several media, including but not exclusive to spray paints and strontium aluminate pigments (Glow in the dark pigments). Aboelfotoh has had several exhibitions nationally and on international grounds, including Tunisia and The United States.
