Abdel Hady El Wechahi

(b. 1936, d. 2013) was born in Mansoura, Dakahlia to a strict family which raised him in a disciplinary way.

Wechahi lost his mother at the age of four, which was the turning point in his life as it left a deep scar in his soul; he managed to overcome his pain by developing a passion for forming shapes.

He spent his lonely hours as a motherless child munching on a loaf of bread creating shapes of animals with deliberated bites. From that age, Wechahi has reached an exceptional methodology of thinking, which he had declared in Madrid in 1978 quoting “Now I can say that I almost think in the language of forms”.

Pursuing his dream of becoming a sculptor Wechahi left Mansoura at an early age and moved to the capital where he joined the Faculty of Fine Arts in Cairo.

Wechahi earned his professorship degree from San Fernando Academy at Madrid University in 1978. The artist's works traveled extensively around the world.

In fact, the artist represented Egypt in several International exhibitions in Europe, North and Latin America. He was personally invited to participate in International Open Air Sculpture exhibitions in Spain, Italy and France.
