Smithsonian National Museum of African Art: Exhibitions-Chant Avedissian
This page from the Smithsonian's National Museum of African Art site is called Chant Avedissian. He was born in 1951 in Cairo and his artistry ranges from photography to costume and textile design to the painted stencils seen here. His relationship with Hassan Fathy, a well-known Egyptian architect who advocated the use of local materials and craftsmanship, challenged Avedissian to reconsider local traditions of artistry and to appreciate the properties of common materials.
