Born in Cairo, Gazbia Sirry
studied fine arts and became a professor in the painting department of the
faculty of Art education, Helwan University.
Gazbia is considered one of the leading Egyptian artists,
with a varied and innovative career of more than 50 years.
Her career is rich and diversified, and is characterized by
an extraordinary versatility. It would be difficult, though, to confine and
limit Gazbia in any traditional school, although her vivid and bold
brushstrokes share features with neo-expressionism: a school of individuality
With a rich curriculum, including more than 50 personal
exhibitions, from Paris to Washington, from Venice to Sao Paolo, from Kuwait to
Tunis, official purchases by international museums, international prizes,
scholarships and important university chairs, Gazbia continues to paint for the
love of art, a way to express her joys and fears. Describing her art, Mokhtar
El Attar, said:
"Gazbia does not paint, but rather pours her soul, talent
and intelligence on the canvas".
