Ahmed Farid

Ahmed Farid

Born in Cairo, in 1950 where he currently lives and works, Farid is an autodidact painter who trained privately in immersion apprenticeship in established artists’ studios. With a degree in social sciences and an early career in marketing communication and business, Farid’s encounter with art came through extensive travels in the early seventies. The meeting with the historical western art movements and his attendance of the effervescent Egyptian cultural life results in a very personal artistic research . The painting of Ahmed Farid is influenced by the gestures attributable to the abstract expressionist matrix that does not deny an atypical and barely visible form of representation but that sublimates it as a revelation of his own reality. His works has been exhibited in private art galleries and public spaces in Egypt and Europe.
