Born in 1984, artist Kamal El-Feky has earned a Bachelor’s Honours Degree in Fine Arts (with a focus on sculpture) from Helwan University. He has been an active member of the Syndicate of Fine Artists in Cairo, as well as the Academia d’Egitto in Rome, and has participated in many exhibitions and international cultural fairs in Egypt and abroad.
El Feky’s sculptures attempt to capture the familiar yet foreign concept of waiting. The artist evokes the viewer to become content with the uncomfortable pause that his weighted figures narrate in their ageless suspension. The sculptures presents the futile, yet adventurous journey of becoming and the perpetuating cycles of human desire that accompany that role. El Feky’s sculptures illustrate human life cycles as a plexus of events and desires. They draw us into a state of stillness, anticipation and entraps the viewer in a dormant state of reflection.
