Keeping his spirit alive.

نجيب محفوظ


Dr. Naguib Mahfouz was an Egyptian writer who won the 1988 Nobel Literature Award.

After his death in 2006, I was commissioned to paint his portrait for a  crazy fan of Dr.Mahfouz’s and long time addict of his work gentlemans office in down town Cairo.

The above image was 45cm x 50cm.

Image created using: Acrylic paint on canvas – Black charcoal for definition and highlights.
