I was born in Cairo the land of the blue skies-red sun, and green land.My simple   upbringing encouraged me to succeed in improving my life,when I had the opportunity to study I chose my favourite subject which was fine art.


I started my career as an artist after obtaining my degree from Leonardo da Vinci academy of art.I travelled to Paris where I worked as a street artist in the hope of fulfilling my ambition to follow in the footsteps of the famous art masters.


From there I went to London to work as a street artist in Bayswater Road, and spent every Sunday exhibiting my art work there.During the week I worked in the local hotels as a waiter or barman to make ends meet.My hardworking life is from necessity but my love of art and music makes everything worthwhile.


I finally fulfilled my dream when 25 years ago I opened an Art Gallery and Jazz Club in Greek Stret, Soho, London to combine music and art.
