Hossam Hassan Dirar, a 34 years old Egyptian artist; born and raised in Cairo, the capital of Egypt. This busy city, with its rich heritage and multi-culture facets, inspired Hossam - as a kid - to explore the world around him and train his imagination to aspire to the undefined and aim to the stars and beyond!

In the year 2000, and after graduating from The Faculty of Applied Arts, Helwan University; Hossam was interested in the study of calligraphy and its relation to art. He was thus a constant participant in all art, photography, and creativity workshops held at that time. He worked as a graphic designer for a multinational advertising agency in Egypt and then in 2005, he started his own art studio; specializing in producing graphic artworks on canvas. Hossam became known in Egypt and the Middle East as a genuine contemporary artist for his daring innovation in art techniques. He introduced his contemporary art to the Egyptian art market through his unique graphic artworks that were accentuated by hand paint and successfully exhibited in private galleries and showrooms. Hossam’s artworks were soon becoming valuable possessions for art lovers and collectors!
Merging his passion for art, his talent as a painter, and his graphics innovation; Hossam Hassan has managed to create his own artistic identity and present it to the world through a new concept of artistic creation.

Art is my way of expressing my concepts & perspectives in life. Life is full of images; through my art I try to capture the essence of those images on canvas.

Abstract is my keyword. Nature is my inspiration. Mind, shapes, and imaginations are my basic elements.
My digital art explores the magic of our heritage in a new contemporary vision & give 'rebirth' to old & traditional icons; with the genuine use of colors, calligraphy, icons, & patterns.

Through my artwork I try to bring to life the beauty of old times, the depth of memorable images in a modern unique vision. Thus text & calligraphy are features that I use. The strong impact of words merged with the patterns make the piece of art a true illustration of my perspectives.

All is one & one is all… Observing different elements & shapes in nature my minds start to work. My imagination starts to see manifestation beyond what we normally see; the invisible in the visible.

I capture these manifestations, reduce them to their basic forms, blend them again creating something completely new full of life and movement. Creating an original piece of art that combines the essence of an idea & the emotion of my inner consciousness.
The result is originality, something you have never seen before.

Each one experiences these new illustrations depending on his imagination, beliefs, & perspective in life. And that's the beauty of Abstract art.

Being different is thinking different. In my artwork everything is possible. Any color is allowed. All shapes, forms & colors can be mixed together. In Art a fish doesn't have to be in the sea.

Everything I observe or experience in life inspires me; everyday small details, everything surrounding us, time, heritage, and memories.

I hope to make people see things that their eyes usually don't see; showing them images of what they feel. I wish to deliver my perceptions to the world; and Art is my way. Hoping that people start to feel the essence of things, only then they will see their own images in life.
