Britt Boutros Ghali بريت بطرس غالي Britt Boutros Ghali is one of Egypt’s most celebrated contemporary artists. Born in Norway, and an Egyptian resident for over 40 years with her studio on the Nile, her artwork is saturated with the influence of her adopted country. Passionately and prolifically producing both emotional abstracts and figurative expressionism, her work is charismatic and bold, exuberant and memorable, celebrating the feminine spirit and dream-like visions. Her series “Women of My World” is like a memoir of faces swathed in textured fabrics and luminous colors, describing the soulful essence of various beings rather then life-like portraits. Joyful, fervent, and always spirited, Britt’s work is a favorite among art collectors and encapsulates the unique aesthetic of Egypt’s contemporary art. —D.N.
