The influence from his surrounding is evident in all of his painting s covering the vivid environment, nature to the color of the Nile, and trees. As a painter, he is famous for his humorous and often romantic portrayals of Egyptian women in particular. His work has a flavor of folklore. His subjects are usually dreamy and serene, as if caught in a love trance. His artworks have a reminiscent element of Aswan with all of its people and the stories behind them, which make them more genuine. Each of Omar Abdel Zaher’s painting s tell a story of a ritual, deeply personal and intensely evocative. Each ritual holds with it a secret, a small hint, as though , and inviting you to the innermost details of the subjects’ lives. His work has been exhibited at a number of prestigious galleries, in Egypt, including Gallery Le Caire and El-Gezira Art Center. On the other hand, Abdel Zaher’s work is part of the permanent exhibition displayed at Cairo’s Museum of Modern Art, and the Cultural Development Fund. Abdel Zaher has previously exhibited both in Egypt and abroad.
