Ezzam is a multi-disciplinary artist, but his mediums of choice are performance and installation art. His artworks for the President's Young Talents consist of fragile, miniature flowers shaped from flakes of dead skin, and ephemeral sculptures that consist of little but talcum powder. Animating these otherwise mute objects, however, is the artist’s living, breathing body. The skin is his own, culled over a period of time from the soles of his feet, and the powder sculptures are remnants of his performances, into which his perspiration is mixed.
