On the other side of reality there seems to be a hidden truth, as the English proverb suggests, the grass is always greener on the other side. According to Shabaan ElHosiny there is a difference between Reality and Truth, as reality appears on the surface and makes itself visible to our eyes! we can deal with its day to day elements, while the truth lies in a closed box that we carefully hide on the « other side ». This contrast between what we see and what is hidden is treated by ElHosiny delightful works in terms of colors and the use of lively characters such as the clown’s. In fact, the clown is present in several of his works, embodying a state of melancholia manifested in the eyes, and reflecting the human need of comfort, companionship and conviviality.

George Bernard Shaw says that some people see things as they are and ask why, and others dream about things that have never existed and ask why not? On the other hand, ElHosiny sees reality in all its day to day details and reproduce it on his canvas, drawing on his imagination and creating flying figures with wings and transforming fish and birds into animals that children can ride ... portraying soaring balloons, and sky paths where bicycles, bulls and cocks move gracefully ... Imagination in ElHosiny’s art, is unlimited ... it grows, jumps, flies and moves on wheels, reminiscent of the surrealism in Chagall’s works where lovers fly over the city, just like the flying birds present in ElHosiny’s paintings.

Concisely, Shabaan ElHosiny’s work is considered a style of figurative art. His works are typically loaded with humane connotations that we can read in a mutual gaze, a caring touch, a parent-child connection ... However, in this particular exhibition ElHosiny leaves a space for a personal story that we can discern and perceive.
