A visual artist, born in Cairo, with an indefinable independent style, Foucault is an experimentalist, an agitator, who practices his art with a relish for taking risks. Recognizing but not yielding to his own natural limits and images, he rejects all forms of purely intellectual reflection and conceptual investigation. At the origins of the « Ateliers Oustide Walls » project, he cultivated a monumental approach to the urban environment with his wall frescos. The contemporary artist as tightrope walker : in sometime seeming stillness, his expression is an intimate personal exploration that exists at the fragile point where artistic impulse and the soul unite, in that ineffable moment when spirit, tension and inspiration lose themselves, only to meld and become alive on the canvas.
