Ganzeer

Ganzeer, a graphic designer since 2005, has been involved in contemporary art since 2007 with a variety of exhibitions between Cairo, Germany, Holland, Poland, Italy, Brazil, USA, Emirates, and Amman. He has become most known outside of the typical art sphere for his street art and activism efforts throughout 2011. The Guardian of London has described Ganzeer as a major player in an emerging "counter-culture art scene on the mainstream radar," and Al-Monitor.com has placed him on a list of fifty people shaping the culture of the Middle East today. Art In America's C. Viveros-Faune has associated Ganzeer with today's "New Realism," a label attributed to an art-form responding to a host of global challenges connected to the majority of people outside the standard art bubble.
