Nofal

From Cairo, Ahmed Nagah Hussien Mohamed AKA Nofal is a 20-year-old student at the Faculty of Arts.

He got into graffiti when he started to listen to Hip Hop music from the 80s and 90s and that affected him so much he wanted to add his own touch. He tried to become an MC but he realized that he was really into graffiti after all.

His knowledge has grown since 2009 influenced by American artists like Cope2 and T-Kid, so now his skills in typography has improved and he has developed his own character: Nofal.

He is keen on graffiti art especially because it’s a thing that he can do without expecting the acceptance of anybody. When he goes to draw, he just imagines himself in Brooklyn making some good stuff on the walls with the artists he likes.

He is in love with graffiti and he says that he will keep drawing whatever it costs him.

“I’ve just started working on wall murals six months ago, but it has become a fast obsession. it is not so different from painting or illustrating, and actually more liberating because there is no time to take a rest, no excuse when a mistake is made, and no small movements but a freedom to stretch the body and indulge in dynamics.

Small mistakes don’t matter on a large canvas.”

and also, here are the samples of my artwork: illustrations and murals.
