Safarkhan News: We are proud to announce the great success of our curation and organization of the first professional art charity auction “Art for Life” in Egypt sponsored by “Bulgari” and in collaboration with Magdi Yacoub Foundation. “Art for Life” succeeded in raising large sum of funds through a professional auction held on May 21 by a licensed Christie`s auctioneer with artwork donations from Safarkhan art gallery and from internationally renowned Egyptian artists Adel El Siwi and Mohamed Abla  as well as the uniquely talented Ahmed Farid . All proceeds of the auction were directly donated to the Magdi Yacoub Foundation to help save lives.

Safarkhan Openning: We have the pleasure to invite you on Monday June 13th at 6:30 pm “exhibition ends September 20th “to its extended exhibition for the forthcoming period of summer. The collection includes a variety of artworks belonging to the era of the pioneers as well as a roundup of the story of contemporary art. Among some of the early works we are privileged to introduce the works of the great woman, artist and activist Inji Efflatoun 1924-1989 whom we had her 30 works in a special presentation section in the Biennale of Venice this year and whom the MOMA in New York is translating her book . We also have the talented late artist Mohamed Ismail 1936-1993 with his large oils summarizing the culmination of all his globe trotting travels in a masterpiece of simple yet complex black and white tones.
In the contemporary art realm we show works by the unique international talent Sabah Naim and her use of painted photography and oils to depict her view on nature and a blissful state. Mastering the human anatomy using a monotone palette we have the talented Hend el Falafly work on a large Diptique showing the female struggles and revelations. The two uniquely talented Alexandrian sculptors Sarkis Tossoonian and Alfons Louis each excelling in his own medium showing also in the collection with new pieces. Side by side we arrive to the next generation of young contemporary artists Mohamed Monaiseer who made great progress with his experiments in abstracting the Arabic calligraphy into a rich dimension of detailed and eloquent abbreviation of our culture. We also introduce Karim Abdel Malak a new highly promising artist; embodied in his layered works we witness the monumental old architecture mixed with contemporary female life. Last but not least we show new works by the young upcoming talent Ibrahim Khatab with his textured and layered fabric canvases and the talented Maha George with her colorful miniatures using symbols and icons of our rich Egyptian heritage.

We look forward to your kind visit to view this extensive collection. www.safarkhan.com
