Basima Mohamed was born in 1971, Harrania village, Giza, Egypt. Her father was a farmer. She attended the local primary school till the age of 16. When she was 10, Basima came to the Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre after school and during summer holidays to play and weave with other young children whom later were to form the second generation weavers with Suzanne Wissa Wassef. Basima’s strong passion for weaving permits the discovery of the endless capabilities of the weaving technique. Her subject matter varies from depicting village stories and farmer’s activates in the fields, to market places, the sea and garden landscapes with their detailed flowers and cactus. Her tapestries have been part of the centre’s collection since the mid 80’s and exhibited in several international exhibitions.
