Little Moments of Happiness by Mohamed Sharkawy

Mohamed Sharkawy was born in 1982 in Qena, Upper Egypt. He now lives and works in Bahrain. Using minimalist form, flat colors and clearly defined shapes, Sharkawy has a unique ability to render images that have a universal appeal. Each form and figure are so purposely deduced to the essentials that his work is reminiscent of wall paintings of Ancient Egyptians. His two-dimensional drawings have become his trademark. Removing all unnecessary details and using solid blocks of bright primary and secondary colors, Mohamed Sharkawy’s unadorned and flawless work is a vision of childlike simplicity and an astute ability to communicate the fundamentals of life – such as the little moments of happiness.
