Hanan Ghanem

Hanan Ghanem, born and raised in Alexandria, artist and painter Hanan Ghanem moved to Cairo in 1999. The graduate of Alexandria University’s School of Fine Arts spent the early years of her career in television and media, though she continued to be an avid art-lover. It was not until the revolution that Ghanem began to seriously consider taking up art professionally again. Inspired by the images of women at protests and activism on the streets, the petite brunette began to paint again in 2011. Ghanem’s paintings range from broad, colorful strokes to more somber, reflective colors; the perfect symmetry in some of her pieces is sharply contrasted with the asymmetry in others. Her inclusion of patterns and bright, vibrant colors makes her pieces unique and memorable.
