Romany Hafez is a visual artist and creative brander; he lives and works in Cairo, Egypt.
Hafez studied creativity, innovation and design at the Cairo School of Applied Arts, Helwan University in the nineties, alongside the sciences of Coptic language and heritage. During his expeditious journey, which spans slightly over 15 years, Hafez has been exploring the origins and foundations of practices that have gradually faded across two millennia. Hafez has developed a new typeface that resorts back to the local ancestry of ancient Coptic art and language. His work includes photographic and textual documentation, in addition to teaching his research findings as well as the Coptic language to younger generations of artists and researchers.
Hafez is also a frequent lecturer of Coptic Heritage, Art and Language.
