Artist Fathi Hassan’s Current exhibition “Dream Waves”, Started From October 17th until November 5th, 2020.
“Fathi Hassan is as gentle as he looks, yet he is a rebel with many causes. He has painted many self-portraits, one of which represents his belonging to two cultures, La Divisione (1991): the Arab-African and the white-Western. For more than 30 years he has chosen to live in Italy, with all its rich aesthetic heritage, hence the influence on his work of post-war Italian artists such as Giuseppe Capogrossi, Gastone Novelli, the Arte Povera movement, and Alighiero Boetti, whom he knew personally. His sources of inspiration are varied however, for he often pays homage to other Arab, African, American or Italian artists in his work and openly admits his admiration for them. He is also attracted by Japanese haiku (which he reads translated into Italian), the lyrics of Egyptian singer Abdel Halim Hafez, and Julia Boutros’s patriotic songs. His technique is equally varied, encompassing paint, sand, textiles, collage, photography and mixed-media on canvas, board or paper, or as murals, photographs and performances.”
