Feature: Creative Nidal Hazem

We are featuring Nidal, a creative in his own way creating these visual alter dimensions using photographs, colour blocks, patterns and re-approapiated images. They take you into another world!

Nidal tells us:

Born from an Egyptian father and an Algerian mother and living in the bustling and chaotic city of Cairo , life for me as a young teenager was relatively tough . While utterly failing at fitting in nor belonging to this socially separated overwhelming environment , I started to passively and quietly take pictures of anywhere i was whether it was relevant to the context of my surrounding space or not.
I would take pictures of corners , bed stands , windows and even stains on the wall to make something out of it. Im also really fond of modern 20th century Arab and foreign cultures as well as art, therefor I sometimes use pictures of old movie stars and divas and even two women wearing mini dresses in 1960s Cairo to add to my work.
