Esmat Dawestashy

Esmat Dawestashy was born in Alexandria in 1943. He is a restless artist who has often changed his style. He began with abstract forms employing collage techniques from his earlier photographic work.

In this phase his paintings took on a surrealism – similar to Dadaism – presented as irrational but symbolic arrays of strongly colored coils and bundles.
