The Egyptian star, Ahmed Helmy, reviewed a painting he had painted for his late father 25 years ago, recalling his memories with him, coinciding with the occasion of the celebrations of International Father’s Day, which falls on June 21 of each year.
Ahmed Helmy published a picture of him, through his account on the “Instagram” website, in which he appeared holding a painting of his late father, sending an impressive message that caught the eye, as he said that he always sees his father when he goes to sleep, and asked him: “Do you see me?”
Ahmed Helmy wrote, in a text: “This picture I drew for my father 25 years ago… Dear father… Do you see me as I always see you in my dreams?”
A number of fans of the artist Ahmed Helmy interacted with the picture, as the image of his father drew attention to the point that some people liken him to the Egyptian artist Mohamed Ramadan, while some expressed their support for Ahmed Helmy, in such a message, stressing that his father is proud of him, as they are proud of him.
Recently, Ahmed Helmy supported his daughter “Li Li” in her new project, which is painting on clothes, by publishing a video clip of the exhibition that she held inside a mall in Sheikh Zayed; to promote its products.
At that time, Helmy, through the “Story” feature of “Instagram”, reviewed a group of displayed “t-shirts”, as well as wearing one of them, commenting: “Not because I am her father, I let her make a discount … but because her father took the shirts for free.”
Her mother, the artist Mona Zaki, was also keen to support her daughter, by visiting her at the exhibition, through which she presents her work and takes souvenir photos with her.
