Additional Information

Hakim commented on his drawings – without comment – saying: “It does not matter that you understand what I am drawing, even if people may understand it for a number of times. The painter dies, but what leaves him remains effective for a long time. The truth is the story of not commenting on my drawings. I learned from the peasants in the days of the monarchy. I used to see them saying their opinion on the king is without words and without sound only by movement and movement of the lips, yet I touched with my hand the extreme eloquence of their opinion.”

Hasan Hakim published in a comics magazine (a novel) a series, entitled “Nafisa and Morsi”, which he presented in a series of cartoons as a diary of the daily life conditions for them, as he reached the height of irony and the human spirit. As for Nafisa, she still dreams of returning to the past and reclaiming her life with it again
