Fareed Aziz is a multidisciplinary visual artist, curator, and scenographer born in 1994, in Cairo, where he obtained his studies in architecture at Misr International University. He started his career as an interior architect, before extending it to a series of international projects in exterior design, urban planning, landscape architecture, retail, and hospitality. He worked in United Arab Emirates, Morocco, Hong Kong, South Korea, and Vietnam. His practice also touched upon furniture design and art direction in advertising agencies. This initial experience of cultural exposure led him to further develop his visual art practice.
He moved to Brussels to pursue his studies in Sint Lucas Antwerp. He curated and participated in a joint exhibition, “Ghurba” investigating his own artistic boundaries in an attempt to reach a radical level of community-building.
On Proximity – “Mirrored space” is his second curation that will be exhibited during the Brussels Gallery Weekend in Globe Aroma and was made in collaboration with MAD.
