Born in Minya in 1986, Rabie graduated from the Faculty of Fine Art of Cairo University’s painting department and today is a member of the Fine Artists Association and the General Federation of Arab Archaeologists. In 2011, he won an incentive award from Helwan University, followed by a full-time grant from the Ministry of Culture. Rabie’s artwork is deep rooted to his hometown. It is a layered blend of different eras and cultures that constitute the rich heritage of the south. He constantly extracts concepts and themes from Egyptian heritage and translates them very successfully into a contemporary visual. The simplicity of these visuals makes the viewer immediately connect with the characters depicted in his paintings and completely engulfs the viewer into the life these characters are living.
