Saleh Abdel Sabour

Saleh Abdel Sabour started printmaking at the young age of 11 years old, and since then had experimented various techniques. Since 2007 however, he began to focus on a new technique which he called "Relief Marble", which allowed him to print on the unusually larger sizes (up to 140x140cm). Up until his untimely passing in 2013, he had a firm belief that a good printmaker can and should use any material available to them to produce good prints.

His works are always ethereal and floating- like a black and white film of a dream. his prints felt like paintings, with each mark releasing a certain energy that fuels the composition into become a moving, living image, rather than a static image.
