Philosophy

Ahmed Farid has a philosophy for his art, He almost used the symbols in his art work. He’s always draws about what the humans are feeling deep inside. Such as Happiness, suffering, poverty and freedom for ourselves. For example “We can feel the freedom inside a jail at the same time you can’t feel the freedom with your family or your country or your community, because the freedom is all in our minds not in our space.”

He specialized in drawing eyes, as he always says “The eyes are the window of the character; you can discover anything the people are hiding deep inside themselves.”

The last edition of Ahmed Farid’s artwork was inspired from the Spiritualty of Human Feelings, and I have believes and message which is “I want my work to inspire people to connect with themselves.  Many people lose their own sense of power and fail to see the torch that will show them the greatest end point to their lives.  Many people only know the first layer of themselves and never discover the highest power within. Ahmed Farid, He was living in San Francisco until he finished the practical part in his PHD in Non-toxic printmaking art, then he moved now his living in New York City” Manhattan “ he did tow art exhibitions , and now he Living in Egypt
