Born in Cairo in 1991,
Her work is influenced by Cairo’s architecture and the stories behind its buildings. The seemingly chaotic black and white prints of tower blocks, their outer walls peeled away, revealing an urban dollhouse vision of the constant flux, noise and frenetic energy of Cairo.
Amani pairs her surrounding environment with her own perspective in a contemporary landscape through the use of printmaking, she narrates the story of one of the oldest, most cultured and overpopulated cities in the world, and the millions of families that call it home.
Her work is part of the Egyptian museum of modern art, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts(NTMOFA) collections and private collections in Egypt, France, Qatar, Australia, Kuwait, China, the united states, and other countries.
