Ahmed Hossam │Research Trip

Switzerland | Visual Arts

April 14 - 24 — Visual Arts

Ahmed Hossam, an Egyptian comic artist and illustrator, born in Cairo in 1990. His start as a professional comic book artist was in 2012 as one of the Comicore team. Hossam drew for many of the major publishers in Egypt including Combo and Garage magazines.

Hossam worked as an artistic consultant for Egypt Comics Week Festival for two years, and his work was exhibited in many galleries in Egypt.

About his research trip, Hossam says “Attending Fumetto comics festival in Lucerne gave us the opportunity to achieve most of our trip goals like interacting with artists from different countries as there were many artists invited from all over the world, exploring their techniques and their point of view about immigration because most of them are exhibiting work about immigration, and we got involved in many useful discussions as well”
