Noor Yoones (Nasr), a self-taught Artist with passion for discovering contemporary answers to the complexities in the works of the great masters of the Renaissance. I focus on the contrast effect of the colors and the subject, a way to stir the viewer emotionally to bring the intended meaning closer to the forefront. It is the relationship between contrast and effect on the viewer and the surrounding which intrigues me the most.

Aeronautical engineer by profession, born/raised in Egypt. Studied engineering in Cairo University and moved to Toulouse (France) for further studies after which settled in Montreal (Canada). As frequent visitor to ‘Le louvre’ during a stay in Paris, I developed affinity for the traditional style of art and spent much time mingling with artists in “Montparnasse”, a famous gathering place for world’s artists. Upon retirement in 2013, my passion to fine arts, sustained by deep roots to the early days of childhood materialized in a pouring wealth of artworks.
