Born in 1980 in the Nile Delta, Ayman moved to Cairo in 1998. In 1999 he started working for Townhouse Gallery of Contemporary Art in Cairo. It was around this time that he started producing work. Informed by his immediate surroundings, Ramadan’s work spans an extraordinary breadth of media and influences, from Minimalist sculpture to photography, video, and performance, often involving residents of downtown Cairo. Since 2001 he has had six solo exhibitions at the Townhouse Gallery and has exhibited his work in Germany, Denmark, and Sweden. Ramadan’s video work Iftar was screened at Tate Modern in London, and his installation Baladi Bus was part of a group exhibition at Kunstmuseum, Bonn. He is currently studying art and living in Amsterdam& Cairo.
