I am Randa ElSisi from Egypt living in Dubai, UAE, mixed media & abstract artist. My passion towards painting has started since I was a child. Throughout my life, I have always been expressing my thoughts through painting. I have decided five years ago to take my passion a step forward to my artist career. One of the greatest sources of inspiration is experimenting different mediums, mixing colors & abstract concepts. I have joined University of Arts in London in 2019 for Mixed Media Art study, and it was a great experience. My artwork is driven by curiosity within observing the beauty in everything around us especially from nature. I’m extremely passionate about embracing ideas and influences from a wide variety of sources and media, seeking inspirations regularly. By applying abstraction, I create intense personal moments masterfully created by means of freedom & creativity. My mixed media artworks demonstrate how life extends beyond its own subjective limits and often tells a story about the effects of cultural interaction over the centuries. I am obsessed with the identity & feeling of belonging. That’s the main reason behind my inspiration which evolves around memories carried over through my life, culture & Arabic calligraphy. I use mixed media mediums to reminisce the cultural & memory icons from the Arab culture across the centuries. Passionate about Arabic calligraphy for its string identity & uniqueness. Experimenting different mediums is a must in my artwork. My art pieces aim to bring happiness & joy through to people’s heart. “I always start painting without sketching, just straight on whatever I will paint on. That brings the purest emotions & the end result always stays authentic. No rules & guidelines in my artwork”.
