Yousra Wahba Egypt

"Inspired by the flow of the materials to create distinctive metamorphic-shaped sculpture embody the colors, texture, and movement of nature in organic form. Through the form and alchemy of synthetic resin, ink, wood & plexiglass; I create sculptures that capture the wild aspect of nature and reflect fleeting moment of streaming energy."
