“Documenting the daily aesthetic.” is what her bio says, and she’s not lying. Rana Hemdan is another engineer, an architect to be specific, who specializes in making art. The Alexandrian based artist has an instagram account that is so relieving; from drawing to photography, it’s like going on a tour in the artist’s mind! Rana had held two exibitions so far and we can’t wait to see what this artist will do next.

Good luck spending the next couple of hours scrolling down these artists’ accounts.
