Mahmoud Salem

Mahmoud Salem
Egyptian contemporary artist Mahmoud Salem

Mahmoud Salem is an Egyptian Sculptor from Luxor. He discovered his delight in creating sculptures already as a child by using mud. Autodidactically, he worked with different materials and created with the simplest tools artworks from clay, wood and stone while constantly enhancing his techniques. Now, he uses hardwood and stone to craft sculptures by hand.

Mahmoud's work is not only influenced by the ancient monuments and sculptures on the west bank of Luxor but also by the places and environments of rural Egypt and the current life problems encountered by ordinary Egyptians regardless of where they live. He says:

"I am heavily influenced by my forefathers, generation upon generation of amazing artists and sculptors, who created with their hands, a way of life and which stands till this day. As with them, I wish for my sculpture to exist for as long as possible without breaking or being destroyed, and it is for this reason that I use hardwood and stone, shaping them with small electronic and handheld tools."
