Aya Tarek

Aya Tarek (born 1989) is an Egyptian artist from the city of Alexandria. Tarek's mediums are primarily street art or graffiti and paint. Although street art in Egypt gained much international attention after the 2011 revolution, Tarek began sharing her street art on the walls of Alexandria in 2008, when she was 18.

"Her work focuses on exploring the notion of urban communication. Aside from her conceptual approach, her vibrant, comical work transmit a sense of simplicity and controversy. Through her site-specific murals, she investigates different ideas concerned with the surrounding public spaces."
In the fall of 2012, Tarek participated in an exhibition in Beirut called White Wall, which brought together graffiti artists from all over the world. She has been featured in and produced several independent films, including a film by Ahmed Abdallah called Microphone, which explores Alexandria’s art scene.
