Omar is a visual artist, based in Alexandria, Egypt. He holds a BA in Information Technology. His interest in visual arts started since 2008 through photography as a medium to explore himself and the surrounding. After graduation in 2012, Omar started working as an IT consultant, leaving photography behind, to realize after six months of work, that it was the wrong decision, so he quit and decided that this will be a turning point in his life.

In the early 2013 Omar got involved into the Alexandrian cultural scene, freelancing as a photographer and graphic designer with cultural and artistic associations and individuals. At this point his interest in video with its all production process emerged, starting to learn more about it, taking small but efficient steps in the field since then.
During this time Omar was taking part in most of the reputed cultural and artistic activities that took place in Alexandria, playing different roles in each project.

Beside all of this, Omar was concerned with finding his own voice in expressing the thoughts and questions that was always present in his mind. And as art from his own perspective is a constant state of searching and exploring throughout life, he is constantly in a process of finding and analyzing. Using photography, video, graphic, sound or any other medium he finds it proper to express himself.

In a very conceptual and abstract vision; Omar is currently focusing on taking his artistic mindset to a new level, learning more about art history and gaining more knowledge on both practical and theoretical level. Read Less
