Gazbia Sirry (born 1925) is an Egyptian painter.

Born in Cairo, Gazbia Sirry studied fine arts and became a professor in the painting department of the Faculty of Art Education, Helwan University. Gazbia is considered one of the leading Egyptian artists, with a varied and innovative career of more than 50 years.

Serry’s art expressed the feelings and traditions of the Egyptian woman during the 1960s. In the 1970s, she used the pyramid images and constructional mixture in her works for expressing their daily life, and in the 1990s she helped in liberating the Egyptian woman from the old traditions through her work.

Gazbia Sirry was born to be the conscience of the nation, with its hopes and pains, joys and sorrows.” — Mokhtar al-Attar
