  • Mashrabeya  artwork by Sherine Balbaa - art listed for sale on Artplode

About Artist:

Sherine Balbaa is an Egyptian artist who excels in the use of color configurations and the art of transforming architectural historic buildings into an art.

Her palette is warm and deep to express the glorification, noble and rich history of old Cairo.

About Artwork:

At a principal junction in the centre of the mediaeval city stands the Mosque and Tomb of Sultan Qansuh al-Ghouri, the last of the Mamluk sultans to enjoy a substantial reign. The waqla or khan is one of the most important and unusual of this series of buildings. It rises through six storeys and is built around a courtyard. The lower two floors are incorporated into an arcade and the upper levels have handsome oriel windows with intricate mushrabiye, the brise-soleil screens common throughout the Muslim world. The adjacent madrassa, on a four-iwan plan, demonstrates the final evolution of the prayer-chamber into a congregational mosque. Here it has been widened until its total width is nearly three times that of the courtyard."
