Ahmed El Shaer, born in 1980 in Cairo where he also lives, is one of the artists that are committed to the Egyptian people’s revolt and he was present at the notorious “Battle of the Camels” where supporters of the then president Mubarak raided Tahrir Square, some charged on the back of horses and camels. In his art you find philosophic reflections on reality, the virtual and our existence, as well as it reflects upon and criticizes – often with sharp humour and irony – the society in which the artist lives and works.
