A new exhibition titled ‘Rigal Min Al-Tarikh’ (Men in History) by renowned Egyptian artist Gamal Meleka is scheduled to run between 11 and 24 October at Al-Bab Gallery at the Cairo Opera House Grounds.

Men in History will exhibit 30 paintings by the artist and will be inaugurated by head of the Fine Arts Sector, Khaled Srour.

Speaking of the philosophy that underpins his paintings, Meleka told Al-Ahram Arabic News that “at the heart of my work is the human being, his relationship with time, and the legacy he leaves behind him.”

“As such, my works are scenes that depict the incessant rhythm flowing in harmony between the human being and his surrounding environment.”

Gamal Meleka is an Egyptian painter and sculptor living in Milan.

Operating under the Fine Arts Sector, Al-Bab Gallery is one of Cairo’s active cultural players, with a variety of ongoing exhibitions.

The exhibition will open on 11 October and run until 24 October.
