On Tuesday, 20 February, Alexei Bukin, vice president of the Russian Cultural and Science Centre (RCSC) in Dokki, inaugurated “Narratives”, an exhibition by the Egyptian Australia-based painter Bakr El-Shaarawi, in the centre's main exhibition hall.

The opening was attended by members of the Russian diplomatic mission in Egypt. Over 40 paintings were on display, varying between oil and aquarelle paintings depicting topics such as human suffering and the relationship between man and woman.

El-Shaarawi adopts different art styles, passing between surrealism, expressionism, cubism and realism, mirroring the internal dynamics of heart and mind.

Director of the cultural programme at the Russian Centre Sherif Gad told Ahram Online that it is El-Shaarawi’s first exhibition in Cairo.
