Wonderfull Nude Body !!!! Handmade
Many of his works placed in Egyptian and International Museums, in addition to art collectors all over the world. He was attracted to metals and fascinated and even captivated by copper, his works either hammered copper, steel or both combined. Rizk differs from most artists, in that he refuses to conform to one stable and repetitive style, his artistic development encompasses numerous technical abilities. His refusal to be cast in one known style or mode is a result of his great self honesty and penetration into a life that refuses to set itself in a solid cast .Thereby the variety and richness of his techniques as represented by the different points of viewing the same reality. In spite of the variance in techniques as represented by the different phases of Rizks artistic development, his vision is steadfast and centers around mankind, mankind is represented through heroic poetry, bravery, stalwartness, sadness, resistance, depth, happiness and beauty.
