Born in Giza, Egypt, to a family of painters and sculptors, Keshta is a multimedia artist working predominantly in painting and sculpture. He joined Helwan University in 1996 to study in the Department of Interior Design. After his first year of college, Keshta decided to change fields, eventually joining the sculpture department, and finally graduated in 2002 with a distinction. Keshta’s work is mostly autobiographical, filled with a symbolism fuelled by the abundance and variety of his personal experiences. Keshta currently lives and works in Spain.
