Keeping in line with their quirky use of nostalgia, Cairopolitan has invited 50 artists from Egypt and the Middle East to display their prints.
Old school print has, for so many years throughout history, dominated the artwork on posters, album covers and publications – even in Egypt. Celebrating this always unique, often memorable and occasional quirky type of art, hip boutique shop and gallery, Cairopolitan, has invited 50 artists from Egypt and the Middle East to send in their prints to form a special exhibition that will take place between the 10th and 24th of February.
With over 250 individual pieces expected, the exhibition will pull together the work of established and emerging artists alike, making for what is shaping up to be an eclectic, colourful and insightful exhibition.
It all fits into the Garden City gallery’s M.O. of channelling Egyptian nostalgia in innovative ways, most notably though a range of products designed with a variety of classic Egyptian iconography – everything from pencil cases in the shape and image of baladi bread, to cushions that look like packets of infamous aspirin, Rivo.
