Ganzeer

Ganzeer is the pseudonym of an Egyptian artist who has been operating mainly between graphic design and contemporary art since 2007. Art in America Magazine has referred to Ganzeer’s work as
"New Realism," and the Huffington Post ranked him among "25 Street Artists from Around the World who are Shaking Up Public Art," but Ganzeer rejects both labels and regards Bidoun Magazine's description of him as a “contingency artist” as probably the most accurate, but The New York Times’ description—“chameleon”—also works. Ganzeer refers to his own practice, however, as Concept Pop. He has recently shifted gears to work on a major sci-fi graphic novel. More info: ganzeer.com.
