'City I', 2011, was made with clay, glass and cement. Mohamed Banawy’s materials are various dimensions of clay and glass, creating moments of shine and others of muteness. His technique constructs beautiful patterns of wonderful decorative arrangements. What seems to be a random and unconscious process actually produces a type of topographical map that extends beyond the geometric to the associated cultural identity of Egypt. The country’s heritage is communicated through the mosaics’s innate forms and materials. Though the concept may not be very blunt nor direct, the viewer can easily visualize a type of map and the unconventional methodology in the application of use of various geometrical and inherent shapes.
