Since the beginning of the 1990s, he has signed his paintings (Reda). He is a painter and photographer with experiences in sculpture. He pays great attention to expressing the humanitarian and aesthetic contents. The human being, the local coastal and popular environment, and the contemporary life reality represent for him rich sources of creativity from which he draws his vocabulary, inspirations, and various forms of expression as each of his exhibitions represents a special aesthetic case that reflects an anxious, sad, ironic and sometimes cheerful thought and spirit that is characterized by the strength of color expression, design and technical diversity of media It has a creative experimentation and collage culture. His recent artistic works reflect his fondness for materials and their formulation in an unprecedented way, where the elements of shapes collide and converge in momentum and harmony.This is how the artist Reda Abdel Salam presents to us his perception of his creative worlds that carried with them the experience of years, the culture of the era and freedom of thought.
