Mohamed El Tahan's Art
Artist Mohamed El Tahan is in love with Egypt and its traditions. Domes, crescents, horses dancing on the tune of the flute, folkloric motifs, festivities, palm trees, are the ABCs of his artistic vision.
He formulated a subject for his artistic research, as he presented the authenticity of the Egyptian traditional folkloric art, through several techniques: color pastel, oil painting, graphic art. He derives his colors from the traditional folkloric colors, as he sees them on the doors, houses and popular figures in a dream that adds value and mystery that touches you with its natural beauty that you feel not only with the eyes but also with the soul, by the paste that he adds endlessly. In his research he visits villages, markets, old quarters and travels to South Egypt to Aswan, Luxor, Assiout, New Valley, where the natural splendors of Old Egypt exist untouched by artificiality.
His paintings represent a symphony and a folkloric dance musical that he moves with liberty, reflecting the authenticity of Egyptian environment. His paintings reflect the luminous nature, unveiling the beauty of Islamic architecture and the close relations that tie humanity, by vertical and horizontal spaces that compare the beauty of integrated homes in Egyptian countryside. His respect for tradition and love of the past enrich contemporary art.
