"All American" is famed Egyptian artist, Ganzeer’s, witted reflection on life in the United States, dealing with symbols and icons used in its culture today.

Dr. Shiva Balaghi, who is curating the exhibit, describes it as “a visual diary of Ganzeer’s first experience of living in the US.”

Ganzeer’s display will offer an array of mediums, with over 80 screen prints as well as works on paper, canvas, wood, and video.

Previously transforming the space at Safarkhan Gallery to echo the feel of the street within its white walls, All American sees Ganzeer as faithful to his graffiti roots, as he takes over Leila Heller’s windows to display his installations.

Ganzeer has released two videos – Trailer 1 and Trailer 2 – providing a sneak peek into the works creation process:

The exhibition opens 16 January 16, and will continue until 21 February
Leila Heller Gallery, 568 West 25th, New York.
