Mo’s art is inspired by identity, socio-political events, and engaging with new experiences. As a young artist of Arab heritage, many natural inspirations add to the western influence he can draw on, through his lens as a British Egyptian.
He finds expression through his background, as an Egyptian, which offers many experiences to inform his art, and to encounter and challenge his identity through contemplation of issues. He enjoys the element of discovery when painting, experimenting with techniques, and sometimes giving the paint freedom to choose its own paths.
