About me

Location Toronto, Canada
Introduction Mohsen Rifaat BSc(arch) MSc(pl) , a long time resident of Toronto, grew up in Egypt where he was inspired by the work of his mother, Fatma Rifaat, the late celebrated Egyptian artist. He holds degrees in architecture and urban planning, and has enjoyed a wide-ranging career which has taken him to many far-away places. Although he spent his professional life in the business, government and diplomatic worlds, Mohsen has never been long removed from his love of art. He is now specialized in watercolour renderings ranging from buildings and structures to still life and landscapes. His work, which involves a variety of subjects from many countries has been displayed and sold in art galleries and exhibitions in Canada, England, France and Egypt.
Interests Some time ago during discussions regarding my exhibiting my watercolours, an art gallery owner in Surrey England mentioned that she was impressed by the versatility of my work and the wide ranging subjects I paint. Artists she worked with tended to be more specialized. To illustrate this I have included here examples of my favourite townscapes streetscapes, and landscapes as well as some still life and portraits.
