Dina Shalaby
Egyptian contemporary artist Dina Shalaby with two of her artworks at a group exhibition in Luxor in 2019

Dina Shalaby is a Russian-Egyptian visual artist focusing on modern art inspired by Ancient Egypt. Using mixed media and her deep passion for pharaonic Egypt, she creates pieces inspired by the past and with a story for the future.

Dina Shalaby converted to her art passion a few years ago after working in international management consulting in Egypt, Italy and the US. She held her solo debut exhibition in Cairo and took part in several group exhibitions, two in Nout Art Gallery Cairo and recently in Luxor Art Gallery (Daughters of The Nile, November 2019) and Nūn Art Gallery Luxor (Nūn - The Inspiration, Februar 2020).

Dina Shalaby studied design at the American University in Cairo. She holds a bachelor degree in mass communication with a major in journalism and a master’s in international business from Italy. She worked seven years at an international management consulting firm across three continents.

Artist Dina Shalaby about her artwork "The Power of Freedom":

"The artwork is inspired by ancient Egyptian lion goddess Sekhmet. The small but powerful golden mane erupts from the middle of the wide black frame, just like a proud and free heart illuminates the darkness on the path. Despite its small size, it is the focal point and the centre of gravity. The black surroundings only accentuate the beauty of its golden rays."

The Sekhmet Series 2.0 ( pdf flyer)

"In ancient Egypt, if you were saved from death or if you became 'a new person' after some tumultuous life experience, that was Sekhmet's touch. And so it was when Life forced you to kneel for doing Her wrong. Whenever you didn't respect Mother Nature, Sekhmet would surely strike with plague and destruction.
Medics in ancient Egypt, among the finest scientists to this day, were Sekhmet priests. Because if she could take life, then she could give it too. For if you are the death then you are also the remedy." - Dina Shalaby
