An Egyptian living in Europe but her heart stayed back home. Having some random thoughts about the before and after pictures. Ghawayesh means bracelets. In my context it symbolizes the cuffs of my culture. I don't know if I like them or hate them. Thanks for passing by.

About Me

My photo
I started this blog in 2006 as a joke. Now that I look back, I have decided to take it seriously!

My Current Work of Art.. Part 5

I wanted to make a painting about depression. So here it is.

This man is Yosri Fouda, a friend and a famous Egyptian writer/Journalist/TV star.

It is 80% complete - I'd say.

بانوا بانوا بانوا!ا



بانوا بانوا بانوا على أصلكوا بانوا
بانوا بانوا بانوا على أصلكوا بانوا
أيوة بانوا ..والساهى يبطل سهيانه
ولا غنى ولا صيت دوله جنس حويط
وكتابنا يبان من عنوانه
بانوا أيوه بانوا

جربنا الحلو المتعايق ابو دم خفيف
وبقينا معاه إخوة شقايق فاكرينه شريف
أتاريه مش كده على طول الخط
الطبع الردى من جواه نط
خلاص بقى مهما انشال وانحط
مفيش دمعة حزن عشانه

وعرفنا سيد الرجال
وعرفنا عين الاعيان
وعرفنا سيد الرجال وعرفنا عين الاعيان
من بره شهامة وأصالة تشوفه تقول أعظم انسان
إنما من جوه يا عينى عليه
بياع ويبيع حتى والديه
وأهو ده اللى اتعلمنا على ايديه
القهر وقوة غليانه

دوروا وشكوا عنى شوية كفايانى وشوش
ده أكم من وش غدر بيا ولا ينكسفوش

وعصير العنب العنابى العنابى
نقطة ورا نقطة يا عذابى يا عذابى
يكشفلى حبايبى وأصحابى
يوحدنى وأنا فى عز شبابى
القلب على الحب يشابى
والحب بعيد عن أوطانه

بانوا بانوا بانوا على أصلكوا بانوا
أهو كدا بانوا على أصلكو بانوا
بانوا بانوا.. أهو كدا بانوا

Egyptian Army Vs. Swiss Army

Enough said.

My City

Isn't she gorgeous?

Until we wake up! :/

I am getting slightly more daring with my paintings so I decided to take the challenge and paint Cairo and Zurich. Stay tuned!
