The Human Body is considered the main Catalyst of my Art practice and body of work, Due to its potentials and the renewed means of expression that it carries within, which constantly accompany my thought as a Visual reference for my Expression, style and technique. Through such, I closely observe the features of wait and anticipation which manifests in reaction to the Social and economic evolution, while confirming the cinematic scenes and photographs as a reference.
About the Artist
Kareem El Qurity (B.1982), Cairo. His practice is through a figurative expression style and merging old and Modern painting techniques. The Artist composes personalities of some references that swing between reality and fantasy, in an attempt to observe the nature of the current thoughts and concepts of our Contemporary Society, where they began, how they evolved, and the Social model that has been sorted and established throughout many circles, which effected the relation between man and his social surrounding.
The Artist is inspired by the faces and body language of the people he observes in his daily life. Al Qurity’s Art practice is much influenced by the vibrant scenes of life in Cairo, especially the Contemporary expressions used in their daily lives practice. Al Qurity ‘s main source of inspiration is life where he starts for example by sketching people in public transportation to observe the subtle variations of their moods, then later by turning them into paintings and drawings that depict their entire emotions clearly speaking for themselves. Al Qurity has a way of manipulating expression, composition and body language skillfully giving a voice to the silent faces he presents in his paintings.
