Adel El Siwi Egyptian , b. 1952

"Siwi is celebrated for his sense of flat shapes of lines offering a voyeuristic journey into an exotic where colour reigns."



Painter Adel El Siwi is known for his monumental figures and elongated faces, as well as his ongoing artistic exploration of the relationship between animals and human beings. Having trained in medicine it is evident that El Siwi has mastered the human anatomy, indeed the human figure is a central theme within his work, a subject he has explored inside and out negotiating both form and philosophy.
