Abdel Fattah is one of El Warsha’s oldest children! He walked in for the first time as a 14-year-old boy who wasn’t a big fan of the arts. At the time, doctors didn’t think Abdel Fattah would survive the year. He taught us all the meaning for perseverance, determination, dedication, hard work, and, most importantly, love. With the love that he has in his heart towards life, he was able to get through some hard times in his life and, through that process, has learned to paint! Abdel Fattah learned to paint at El Warsha from square one, and now, at 18 years old, has become one of the most talented artists that we’ve ever seen. He portrays ideas of the lessons that’s he’s learned throughout his life, like living through the war in his home country Yemen and not only fighting but conquering his cancer, in a lot of his artwork as these lessons have become part of who he is as a person. This piece is a representation, through color, of how everything that didn’t seem to make sense together – ultimately, work together in the most beautiful ways.
