The Self and The Other by Sobhy Guirguis

Sobhy Guirguis: The Self and The Other is a retrospective to commemorate the first anniversary of the passing of a remarkable Egyptian artist, Sobhy Guirguis. The show brings together over 60 of his most definitive paintings and sculptures, many previously unseen, spanning 60 years of artistic production. Through their child-like appearance and unusual geometric shapes, the works of Sobhy Guirguis bring forth a compelling and mature legacy of avant-gardism, modernism and humanity. Sobhy Guirguis was probably the most existential Egyptian artist of the twentieth century, beside Abdel Hady el Gazzar, and the most truthful to the child within the adult. The best works of Guirguis take you to the limit of your capacity to be moved by art.
