About me

Magdy al-Kafrawi: is an Egyptian artist who believes the grandest thing in the universe is the human being and the grandest in the human being is the soul. Hence he is occupied in his works by capturing this soul in its different forms. His canvases always include individuals and in particular women which represent to him a transparent container of the soul. Through the faces of women he captures the different status of the soul, its reactions, values, problems, and deepest secrets.

Magdy al-Kafrawi is occupied by the classical composition of the canvas as his colors interact in harmony and balance. He is fond of playing with tones or levels of the same color to the extent one might view the one canvas is a display of different tones of the same color. He also manipulated his favorite color material – oil - to be malleable and change from its normal coarse nature to the smoothness of water colors.

The shadows and light in his works change by the change of the light entries and affect the tone of color.

Decoration also has a prominent place in his works. If individuals are the soul of the canvas, the decoration is the geography of the soul, its history, places and stories of abundant details which tell you a new story every time you look at it.
