Ezz El-Din Naguib is a painter, art critic and short stories writer. Most of his paintings have a surrealistic flavor. Old oases and the arid yet varied landscape of the desert is a recurring theme in his art. Abandoned houses in vacated villages, mountains and rocks take more or less human forms and functions, they have something to tell. Compositions are built around geometric volumes with shadows falling from different angles and using earthen colors.
