Ali Hassaan

Egypt

(Born in 1975, Egypt.)

Ali Hassaan is an assistant professor of painting at Luxor University’s Faculty of Fine Arts, and he holds a BA, MA, and Ph.D. in painting from Helwan University, Cairo. He is known for his beautiful mixed media portraits of people from Upper Egypt. With a subdued palette highlighted by vibrant colors, Ali Hassan’s paintings are the quintessence of rural Egypt and Luxor life. His landscapes capture the minimalism of the desert with its saturated light, dense golden fields of wheat in the time of the harvest, or the vastness of “blue horizons” as he explores the Red Sea coast of Hala’ib and Gebel Elba with its mangroves, sand dunes, and sea vistas. His drawing sketches reveal a discerning eye for details with bold lines and dense colors, rambling street scenes of a peculiar clutter and chaos uniquely Egyptian. And his portraits are always memorable: from the proud fellahin (farmer) women whose dense black gallabia (traditional dress) is like a pillar of strength in the landscape, to the men and their horse carriages, weathered but enduring like the ancient temples in the background.


Ali Hassaan has exhibited in over 30 exhibitions locally and has gained a strong following amongst art collectors. Hassaan Ali has participated in several solo and group exhibitions in several countries including Sudan, Egypt, Spain, Germany, and South Africa. He was also the recipient of the Excellence Award at the Cairo Biennale in 2007.
