Developing his practice from his studio/home, creating a striking depth with his idiosyncratic line and hatching technique to make art as a commitment to always using his craft to represent others with less of a voice than him. Creating mystical political pieces and cultural restitant works infused with dark humor. With his rich graphic design skills and his artistic abilities Marwan started off creating cover artwork for some of the biggest names in the music industry. Later after grabbing the world's eyes with his infamous "The 2Vth" Mural during the Egyptian revolution, his work is being exhibited worldwide and soon got the attention of his peers and idols. Shahin's practice is considered as a continuation of what his ancestors were doing 7000 years ago. Documenting our current history through beautiful, thought provoking art.
