Here is the idea, as well as, Cairo atelier in downtown consists of many atelier and a spaces of gallery for changing exhibitions to another artists, why we don’t do that “on a small scale”? The gallery had opened on October 2006, and it was as the 1st art gallery at New Cairo City.
Alaa Lotfy (°1973, Cairo) makes drawings, paintings and drawings. By choosing mainly formal solutions, Lotfy makes works that can be seen as self-portraits. Sometimes they appear idiosyncratic and quirky, at other times; they seem typical by-products of American superabundance and marketing.
Mohsen Attya (°1947, Cairo, Egypt) is an artist who mainly works with painting. With a conceptual approach, Attya creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.
Hi Nashwa, Just to let you know that the paintings have indeed arrived and picked by myself few days ago. The two paintings are high quality art of great value. The Shaheen painting is very, very, very original. It has a great metaphysical quality. looking at it from a Christian view point, I see the face of Mary closing her eyes and wondering about the great responsibility she will have to assume as a mother of a great prophet but also reflecting prospectively on the pain she will have to endure seeing her son tortured then crucified. Please transfer this to artist Shaheen. I really feel that I have museum quality peaces. Nadim
