Like Water
New York, NY

Screenprint on Paper
48.3 x 63.5 cm | 19 x 25 in

The water-like pattern taking up the majority of the print is comprised of Arabic type that roughly translates to: “The day will come when humanity is united and becomes like water, flowing in separate rivers to meet in seas and oceans that welcome everyone.” The very bottom line is an annotated English translation of the above. It is the first piece of artwork I created upon arrival in New York City from Cairo.

The first edition created was a limited edition 3-color screenprint on white paper. Another run was done on yellow paper, and a selection of those were further embelished by hand.
