Rabab Nemr

Rabab Nemr is a veteran Egyptian artist whose work has been exhibited consistently since her graduation from the Fine Arts Faculty in Alexandria in 1963. She later earned a doctoral in Art from the San Fernando Academy, University of Madrid in 1977.

Nemr's work has always been quite intricate in relation to its size. Her attention to detail is magnificent, using miniscule strokes of a radiograph pen in order to create large pieces that convey the soul of her hometown, Alexandria. The artist mixes between solid black and white works, and those with colour, and continues to thrill with her larger than ever artworks of incredible detail.
