Ahmed Abdel Fattah’s artistic experience takes different dimensions of contemporary realism in which classification rejects a specific artistic direction, in which he connects between realism, abstraction, and harmony, in which his conviction in the role of art is towards the visual vision of the surrounding world and not being influenced by revolutions, fashion, or situations to create color rhythms through it. Abstract and spontaneous in a realistic framework whose protagonist is the visual theme. He believes that the artist, like the world, must contemplate the depths of things, in order to better perceive and express them. Abdel Fattah relies on his subjects on the psychology of visual objects, such as his depiction of people in repetitive form, human faces in giant “giant paintings” sizes, landscapes and their relationship to the ocean, people and animals, and water forms that appear abstract through the reflections inside them, as well as any other stimuli around him. To leave the viewer with a conceptual character that prompts us to think beyond the work from unique visual content. He is a lover of experimentation, as each of his works considered a different experience in which he proposes a new visual concept that departs in this concept from the idea of the medium, as he has experiences that included graphic works related to cases of technology in art, “New Media Art”.
