VIEW IN MY ROOM
"After…” is to create a painting in the style of an Artist that has come and gone before... While everybody fights for (and consolidates) power, the “Korsi”, Egypt's progress suffers…Van Gog...h’s box of onions represented “growth”; here it is left empty. The colours evoke Ancient Egypt. Above all this painting is one of self-exploration. “I have a picture in my mind…I’ve painted many many times…Now it has to see the light.” Van Gogh painted “Vincent’s Chair…” as a reflection of himself, as a message to show simplicity and his denunciation of materialism. And as a symbol of his painting style, unapologetically expressive. The perspective is also deliberately warped...

My art is inspired by identity, socio-political events, and engaging with new experiences. As a young artist of Arab heritage, many natural inspirations add to the western influence I can draw on, through my lens as a British Egyptian. I find expression through my background, as an Egyptian, which offers many experiences to inform my art, and to encounter and challenge my identity through contemplation of issues. I enjoy the element of discovery when painting, experimenting with techniques, and sometimes giving the paint freedom to choose its own paths. In recent years, I have felt impassioned throughout the seismic changes in Egypt and the Middle East, and my art has served to document my feelings, painting many pictures drawn from my emotive response. BBC World News requested to interview me about my Egypt inspired paintings (with a montage as the studio background); to attempt to represent the feelings of British Egyptians, was a humbling experience. Saatchi Gallery Online twice selected a painting of mine, inspired by Egypt, “Albena 3ala Masr” (“Our Heart is with Egypt”) and “Korsi – Chair, after Van Gogh 1888”, for online collections, chosen by their Head Curator and Gallery Director. الاسم :محمد نجم (مو ستار ارت) ان الفن مستوحي من هويتي والتعامل مع خبرات جديدة مستوحاة من الطبيعة إضافة الي الخبرة الغربية . وحيث أنني شاب بريطاني المنشأ من اصول عربيةفاني من خلال خلفيتي الشرق أوسطية اجد التعبير والتفكير والاستمتاع بعنصر الاكتشاف خلال لوحاتي وتجربة التقنيات وإعطاء الطلاء حرية لاختيارات مساراتي الخاصة.ولقد أجريت لي قناة بي بي سي لأخبار العالم مقابلة خاصة حول الإلهام والوحي المصري في لوحاتي .ومن المهم هو استحضار الشعور بالأحداث والمواضيع القريبة الي قلبي في لوحاتي واني اعرض لوحاتي الفنية في العديد من المعارض في لندن وجميع أنحاء المملكة المتحدة وكذلك في مصر.
