Egyptian artist Mohamed Abla will exhibit paintings reflecting Egypt’s people both past and present.
Abla was born in 1953 in Mansoura. He graduated with a BA from the faculty of fine arts at Alexandria University in 1977. The prolific painter has exhibited artwork in galleries across Europe, including the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and the UK, as well as Egypt.
Abla frequently uses art to confront pressing social and environmental issues, and he is known for his engagement in politics. He has been a strong proponent of the January 25 revolution since 2011. His artwork, always politically charged, has mirrored the tumultuous transition following the revolution in his paintings.
