Hello, I’m an Artist is Sara Nabil’s first solo exhibit. In introducing herself to the artworld, she tackles three main themes: her natural drive to paint, the connection between the public and artwork, and comparing contemporary art with romanticism.

She graduated in 2010 from Alexandria's Fine Arts University, and has joined several group exhibitions since then. Her work in the Hello, I'm an Artist spans several mediums: photography, drawing, painting, installation and video.

Nabil is one of two winners of Medrar’s Roznama 3 competition award, which took place on 12 October 2014. The prize granted her and artist Hend Samir USD 500 each and a solo show at Medrar.

Roznama is a competition and exhibition for young contemporary Egyptian visual artists launched by Medrar in three editions: 2006, 2013 and 2014, with the aim to showcase young artists and cultivate an environment in which all participating artists can mingle.

In the third edition, 17 works were selected by a jury composed of artist Bassem Magdy, curator Tarek Abo El-Fetouh and artist Hala El-Koussy.

The exhibit opens Thursday 2 June at 7pm and will run through 16 June, from 3 pm to 9 pm except Fridays.
