Wafik Fahmy (aka Walter Fahmy)
Born in Alexandria, Egypt in 1951.
Lives in the central coast of California.
Walter started participating in an extracurricular art group taught by an architect/ fine art professor while in high school.
During his college years, pursuing a career in pharmacy, he was a member of the student art league, tutored by fine art professors.
Being surrounded and raised among antiquities, he has always admired the avant -garde artists of their time; Van Gogh, Matisse, the fauves, Jackson Pollock, Joan Mitchell, Richard Diebenkorn, Nicolas De Stael and others.
The masters of the late 19th century and beginning of the 20th century and beyond made him appreciate the colors, the exuberant effect of the palette knife or the noticeable brushstrokes on the canvas partaking and conveying the artistsí emotions during their creative process.
Nature, music and the social or political environments are always his reference point to launch a new project.
Special design commissions are accepted.
