They may not be the most well-known or established on the local art scene, but they are talented and influential Egyptian artists you should know about.

We’ve asked Art Egypt, an Instagram account dedicated to promoting the country’s fine art, to list their top choices for original and expressive artists to watch now. Art Egypt, which has some 3,000 followers, boasts the largest database of young artists in Egypt (whether they work as painters, photographers, illustrators or with mixed media) and is run by a team of three artists and journalists.

Mina Nasr
Nasr’s art deals with changes in Egyptian society, tackling issues of culture, community, politics and the problems of daily life. Alternating forces are often at play in his images, such as power and control confronted by freedom and liberty. Nasr’s work includes drawing, computer graphics and installations.
