Expressionist Egyptian artist Hala Sharouny graduated from Helwan University in 2004 and holds a Masters degree in painting.
Hala’s work is characterized by its dynamic, playful techniques. Her palette is diverse, colorful and vibrant. Her artwork addresses contemporary social issues like women and society with a twist of humor.
Through her paintings, Hala wants to create a poetical report of Egyptian society’s change during the last few years by images. She certainly wants to talk about women and their efforts to gain more rights. Her women are confident, dreamy, liberated, rebellious, breaking stereotypes and social taboos, and comfortable in their environment.
Working now as a Professional freelance artist, her work has been locally and internationally exhibited. Hala has 4 solo exhibitions 3 in Egypt and 1 in Tunisia. Hala also participated in many workshops and general exhibitions inside and outside of Egypt (Cairo , Alexandria , Sharm El Sheikh, Suhag , Vienna , Tunisia , Gaza, Khan Youniss, Istanbul , Fethiye , Vierzon , Kuwait )
She was invited by the Chinese Minster of Culture to to represent Egypt’s female artists in a workshop called the insight of China , along with several artists from other Arab artists.
Besides being a professional painter she has also done some political graffiti before and after the revolution in Egypt.
