Mohamed Sabaawi began his art studies as a young man in Alexandria, Egypt with Seif Wanly, who introduced modern art to Egypt. Under family pressure, he interrupted his formal study of fine arts to become a medical doctor, practicing psychiatry for almost 30 years in the U.S. In the last decade he revived his focus on the arts, studying among noted American artists in the arts community of Asheville, North Carolina.
Mohamed’s decades in psychiatry attuned his senses to emotional nuance; this aptitude finds new expression in the way he identifies and interprets on canvas the essence of his subjects. His work has been characterized as emotionally resonant, uniting the truth of a realistic representation with psychological and spiritual intuition. Exquisite sensitivity to color value and light and the expressiveness of his brushwork are the foundation of his appealing and characteristic style.
Today he works from a studio and gallery space in the historic center of Bordighera, in the Liguria region of Italy. He spends part of the year in Asheville, where since summer of 2017 he shares a studio in the River Arts District with like-minded painters.
