Mo’s masterly digital artworks juxtapose his trademark harlequin kaleidoscope pattern - with its inherent air of whimsy - and the gravity of his subject matter. His work responds to regional crisis (the turmoil in Egypt, impossible situation in Gaza, the gap in women’s education in certain cultures and global environmental concerns) as well as riffing on the everyday. His inspiration comes from all manner of haphazard places, from random colours and textures, through to bus tickets and old books. In his vintage, surreal style Mo is always juggling new experiences, mediums and ideas, tackling contentious issues such as power and politics, the environment and culture, through dreamlike imagery. He attributes the explosive colours, cultural diffusion and distinctive character of his work to the myriad of influences he has been exposed to from living in many different countries.
Mo is an artist & graphic designer based in Amman, Jordan and a graduate of the Academy Of Arts, Egypt. Exhibitions include solo shows at Jacaranda Images, Amman, Jordan (2016 and 2014) and Mashrabia Gallery, in Cairo, Egypt (2003).
