Grant gallery presents a unique group exhibition of masterpieces by late artists Hassan Rashed, Mohamed Al-Zahed, Said Al-Adawi, Farouk Shehata and living artists Adel Thabet, Taha Abdel-Aal, Wael Hemdan, Hanaa Hashem, and Omar Abdel-Zaher

Farouk Shehata (1938-2018), a pioneer of graphic design, was born in Alexandria where he graduated from the College of Fine Arts ‎with distinction in 1962, together with a group of talented graphic artists such as Said Al-Adawi, Mahmoud Abdullah, Atiya Hussein, Sabri Hegazi. Starting with social realism and depictions of the 23 July Revolution in such paintings as The High Dam, he moved onto abstraction.

He exhibited all over the world, representing Egypt at biennales, and gave over 46 solo exhibitions, the last of which was at the Zamalek art gallery late last year.

The exhibition continues through the end of the season.
