Soha Abou Hussein

Painter and video artist lives and works in Cairo/Egypt.

“I have been working as an artist since I graduated, I spend my life time, reading attending lectures and workshops, all about different kinds of art although I studied art at the American university but I guess learned more about art from practical life and through my exhibitions /nationally and internationally ones.

As a graphic designer the more projects I had realized, the more experiences I earned. To sum up, I appreciate any kind of art, and I could learn anything related to it quite early.” (Soha Abou Hussein)

She studied and graduated at the American University in Cairo and Digital Art at NABA in Milan/Italy.

She meticulously embroiders the surface of her design and painting, sewing (a metaphor for women‘s work and an act eternally connected to notions of domesticity and femininity), she addresses the role of the women in society and seeks to dispel socially imposed stereotype.

At the outset of her career, she was exposed to growing up in Cairo, later expanding her scope to address the objectification of women throughout the world. The source for her heady imagery comes from daily changes.
