Born in Beheira, Egypt in 1984, Hady Boraey lives and works in Alexandria, Egypt. He received a BFA in 2005 and an MFA in 2011 as well as a Ph.D. from the Faculty of Fine Arts from the University of Alexandria in 2015. Boraey’s style is recognised for his saturated colour palette, often using a unified crimson red for his backgrounds. His figurative stylistic approach is akin to traditional
South African sculpture and ancient Egyptian low reliefs and manuscripts, yet the inclination tends to lean towards surrealism. He has participated in over 40 group exhibitions in Egypt, Italy, the UK, Switzerland, and the UAE. He has also received various awards from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Alexandria and the medal of appreciation from the Bibliotheca (Alexandria).
