Born in Egypt, Aly Sirry is a self-taught artist who works in various mediums including pottery, paper-making, metal, wood, ink and acrylic. He is a full-time diplomat with a real passion for the creative fields. His first solo show, “Calm Chaos”, which was held in 2017 at Art Talks (Cairo) was a statement about the political rupture and chaos taking place in his immediate surroundings. The artist stands out for his minimalist brushstrokes and monochromatic compositions. Sirry’s meticulous attention to detail invites the viewer to take time with each piece. In the words of the artist himself: ‘My work seeks to divert observers from the dissonant and invasive ambient noise towards a zone of tranquil reflection’.
