I've just bought a painting and I want to find out about the artist and the context. I can't find anything through a Google search.

All I know: The artist is Attiya Hussein, and I believe he/she is Egyptian (maybe Cairo specifically). The painting is dated 1985, so fairly contemporary.

If you know anything about contemporary Egyptian art -- or anyone who knows -- please tell me and also spread the word. THANK YOU!

This is my painting:

Caroline is over on Colorbuffs recreating the palette. Yes, please call attention to your bad behavior. Psychotic attention whore.
