SORAYA FAHMY at Al Kahila Art Gallery

Al Kahila Art Gallery invites all art lovers to the opening of the Art Exhibition "L'Égypte d'antan" by Soraya Fahmy. The  vernissage will take place on Saturday June 22, 2013 at 6:00 PM.

Soraya Fahmy is an Egyptian contemporary artist, born in Athens in 1968. She always had the chance to travel the world since she was a child thanks to her parents' job. She graduated from the University of Geneva, after being educated in five different Lycée Francais schools worldwide. She has been painting since she was very young.

"My paintings are an emotional response to memory of people, places and of times spent with friends and family . The pleasure and joy is in the making, the layering, and the final reflection of the soul of people I met. I tell stories with my brush. Slowly, layer by layer the spirit flows into the painting. Eventually something pure seems to breathe below the layers. The time is frozen. How did the story begin? Who are these people ? I am walking in big footsteps. My footprints might be still small, but they are of importance to me and to the one whose heart is marked by my paintings".

The exhibition will run until June 29, and can be visited daily from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM.
