Yasser Rostom is quickly gaining a reputation for being 'the Egyptian Dali’ A current master of surrealism, Rostom draws stunning imagery that is blend of ancient and modern to compose something entirely surreal, A lover of pen and ink, Rostom's impeccable technique magnify the glory and mystique of his subjects and his solid contrasting backgrounds serve the often bizarre messages of the artist who makes his subjects appear as if out of no where, the themes of humanity, myth, power and animals make his work powerful and unforgettable

In his exhibition, “About the Underworld” , opening on October 7th at Syra Arts Gallery in Georgetown, Yasser reflects on simple everyday situations as well as many of the general thoughts that preoccupy mankind.   Each artwork is a dazzling historic mixture of icons, images, and symbols representing a critical view on the world we live in. Staying true to his roots and the Pharaonic art that is a part of his culture and upbringing, and combining it with surrealism, he has created astounding art that has a universal appeal
