I felt pride to be chosen as a member of the board of trustees of the Farouk Hosni Foundation for Culture and Arts, and I am pleased to join this great cultural institution whose board of trustees is headed by the brilliant artist Farouk Hosni, who does his best for Egypt even if he is not holding a political position.. He works for the sake of future generations.
He enjoys a cultural vision, a human vision, and a societal vision.. A person who loves the soil of this country and its beautiful details.
I have known Farouk Hosni for a long time, during which I knew him as a person with a tender experience that does not recognize position and authority as he loves his country and its beautiful details.
I know his cultural vision and his interest in youth innovations, he is always encouraging people’s creative talents in many fields, including journalism, arts, medicine and architecture.
When he established his foundation, he clearly set his goal, which is creating areas that are attractive to young people and contribute to supporting those with creative energies and talents, in addition to embracing many young talents and developing their creative talents, which is a difficult task in the midst of his artistic world.
In addition to the works and imaginations of Farouk Hosni, you find yourself overlooking the rarest international collections of artists such as Ragheb Ayyad, Adam Hanin, Mahmoud Saeed, Hamed Nada, Samir Rafea, Giorgio de Chirico, Mahmoud Mokhtar, Seif Wanly, Adham Wanly, Antoni Tàpies, Hedayat, in addition to his huge library of music and books.
Farouk Hosni is an artist who has a real dream that found its way to become real represented in preserving the unique architectural taste and sending it to every city and village in Egypt and preserving the heritage of Egypt and the future of tourism.
He also developed the artistic planning of the Grand Egyptian Museum, he is dreaming of transforming the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir square into the largest center for studying Egyptology in the world, and it is one of the most important suggestions that I demand its immediate implementation due to the importance of the place and the importance of having an academy for studying Egyptology.
I express my appreciation to the man who once said that art is the imprint of history and remained keen to leave achievements and works that will remain one of Egypt’s fingerprints in the service of civilization, urbanization, progress and humanity!
