Mahmoud Menaysy dreaming young artist. I really fascinated with your technical and imaginative improvement as well as that easily deep powerful style in expressing your art visions. Tributes to the young artist who enriched the young art life with hopeful ambitious deeds. Farouk Hosni

In few years Menaysy was able to unleash his deep powerful art character submitting it to experience the Modern Art. In the last two years, this young talented artist introduced important answers to art perplexes. For instance how to tackle the contradiction thesis and the importance of shock and contrast.

If he tackles woman’s body, he will incarnate the ethereal treasure that carry the space to express the entire existence of universe, thus it would be the cold deaf material that explodes to protest against all solid, cold, soft, thick, soulless, and mindless. Even though, Menissy still faithful to the system and method, even his keen on the systematic aestheticism margined his original theory of omission and protest, settle it among shock and contrast factors to unveil the artificial consumed stereotyped.
