#repost @egyptintlartfair ・・・ One more artist is going to tag along and she is @dina.targam! Contemporary Egyptian Artist Dina Targam was born in Egypt, and currently works and lives in Cairo. She graduated from the American University of Cairo with a bachelor’s degree in Architectural Engineering as well as Visual Art. She’s always been passionate about art and architecture; from a young age she wasn't the one who spilled out her heart but it was only the canvas that allowed her to truly vent her emotions freely without having to describe or justify them. Targam’s paintings typically do not follow a set plan or logical process. She actively relies on her emotions and subconscious mind to direct her. She attempts to silence the mind and let her soul guide the shades of color and choice of brush strokes. Although at times the process seems random and arbitrary, but as soon as she starts it just flows smoothly as if it was planned all the way. Her abstract style is intuitive, personal and exposed, leaving you reminiscing within each piece. Targam held many solo exhibitions in Cairo, and participated in several exhibitions in Egypt, Germany and Spain Come check out Dina's artwork at Egypt International Art Fair on 8 & 9 March at Dusit Thani LakeView, Apply for your invitation through the link in bio.
