Mohamed Abdel Hadi the Storyteller Artist

Influenced by ancient Egypt, Persia, hieroglyphs, and mythology. His artworks seem to be born from a unique culture existing only in Mohammad’s dreamy mind, with its private language, heroes, and fables to be deciphered and interpreted. It is a classical link he has created with gods and beasts, great humor, extraordinary drama, and passionate love. Few artists achieve such original storytelling through their art.

He can transform poems by great poets into art pieces, including Afifi Matar, Mahmoud Darwish, Badr Shaker Al-Sayyab, and others. Concerns with what touches him in the Egyptian street, whether in the means of transportation, cafes, and other various places, translating them into highly accurate artworks using Acrylic on canvas.

Women presence

Since the beginning of creation, God did not create Adam alone but created a partner for him, a lover, and a companion in his loneliness, so that life would be based on them together and not for one party without the other, which is the mother, sister, friend, beloved, lover and inspiring, and there is no art except that the woman has a role in it, she is inspiring in her movements, dwellings her childhood and innocence.
