Yousef Sabry is inspired by the art of “divinity and its deceptions”
Growing up with a religious background in a country like Egypt, it can be hard to question religion.
For Egyptian illustrator Yousef Sabry, an artistic voice was found from having internal struggles with divinity in his partially religious community. Alongside a love for ancient history at a young age, Yousef’s resolve was to replicate the aesthetics of divinity through surrealist narratives for his own relief.
“Creating grandiose, fantastical narratives of a world beyond our own," he says, "yet inspired from it, is a core inspiration every time.”
