Hamed Nada was a key figure in the Egyptian Contemporary Art Group formed in 1946, alongside Ibrahim Massouda, Kamal Youssef, Samir Rafi and Mahmoud Khalil. His art drew inspiration from Cairo neighbourhoods, local traditions and storytellers, exploring magical realms through symbolism. His paintings provided alternate spaces for working-class figures and their communal households.
