Mahmoud Soliman محمود سليمان With confident and joyful paint strokes, Mahmoud Soliman takes his inspiration from Post-Impressionist painters like Van Gogh, yet with each painting his style and vision becomes more uniquely his own, bold and wonderful. Exploring the Egyptian countryside, Soliman rejoices in the beauty of rural life. His goats are marvelously and affectionately rendered. And his portraits capture a determined and powerful gaze, much like the artists’ own. —D.N.
